Best time to give notice when on maternity leave? Should I wait until leave is over?

If you don’t go back for at least 30 days post leave, your current firm can make you pay back the cost of your benefits from the day you started your leave. I would consult an employment attorney if this could be a concern

Same comment as OW1. I think you may be eligible for short term disability portion (depending on your state), but anything above that the company may put restrictions around. Come back. Work 30 days then put in your notice

Not speaking from experience, but yes???

Yes I’d wait until it’s over

Out of curiosity, are you becoming a stay at home mom, switching to industry, taking some time off to look for a new job, etc?

Should I send across any documents or wait for the written offer to come through (not even sure if the terms offered would be favourable!!)?

Anyone faced a similar situation / have any advice on how to proceed? Thanks!

I got I new job I start in 2 weeks. My husband and I planned on trying for our second child in August.

I was a month in as Workday HCM Consultant with Accenture. They immediately throw me into the HCM courses to obtain my WD HCM certification. There are three parts HCM Essentials, HCM Applied, and HCM Practical. The passing score is 70 or above. I scored a 62 on the Essentials portion, I passed Applied, and at the end of this week Practical. During class, I received an “immediate connect” Team call and I was fired because of my low score. I'm devastated, and shocked. Yesterday was my birthday.

I just feel like I am not safe as a woman and I am cruel and selfish for bringing a child into the next generation. Any words of support?

I’m returning back to work this week from maternity leave and wondering what to do as far as nursing/pumping. Our 5 month old isn’t on a schedule right now and nurses on demand (every ~2 hrs or so). My husband will be watching him for the next few weeks, followed by a nanny so I could continue nursing. Do you think it would be better to try and put baby on a schedule and block off time for nursing? Is it realistic to nurse on demand while working? Switch to pumping?
