Hello all!

Changing from Vacation and Sick Time to just plain PTO starting in Jan. Staff can save up to 40hrs of their accrued Sick Time banks to use in 2022 in addition to their new PTO.

We have a part-time employee with more than 40 sick hours who will try to use as much of their Sick Time as they can before Jan 1. If this person has an avg weekly schedule of 17.5 hrs, can we stop them using sick time if their sick + work time will take them over their 17.5 scheduled hours?

I am in San Jose with AOS (Eb1C) filed in May 2021. Receipt number starts with MSC. Completed biometrics in Oct 2021 and have received EAD and AP in November 2021. I140 approved in Mar 2022. Since then I haven’t received anything and have been waiting for my medical RFE. Do you guys think realistically I have a chance to get GC in this USCIS Fiscal year? Are other people in San Jose facing similar wait times? It’s been 15 months already since AOS filing.


Hi all,

I'm done with this app. People are talking about that parents don't have the right to know if their kid wants to be called by a different pronoun and keeping things from parents. Makes me sick. I told them they're all fucked in the head. So I'll be booted soon. Good knowing some of you. Peace.

I’ve been going through quite a rough time and ended up in hospital partially due to stress. Work and personal life stress. Tawakul is there and I’m put my full trust in Allah that he’ll make a way for me out of what feels like rock bottom. I honestly don’t know what to do when it comes to work. The idea of going back to work is giving me anxiety. Before I got ill I was crying in meetings (virtual meeting and on mute). I just feel hopeless and lost 😔

What I’m about to say is extremely selfish, but I really don’t want to spend the last few “free” weeks prior to tax season with the family. I’m doing it because it means a lot to my mom. I have no friends back “home”. Also, I feel like if I had my own family or even a significant other the parents would understand me not coming home. For some reason I’m single so what else would I be doing lol now they want to travel with me when I’m home to see other relatives..


Hi Any hiring manager here from product company looking for a business analyst?pls DM me , serving NP


I have been in conversations with a couple companies about new positions that they’re considering me for. I have built relationships with and respect them highly, but am unsure of my future plans - am strongly considering grad school in the fall. Is there a way for me to let them know gracefully and ask if they’re still open to working together? I feel pretty sure about grad school but nothing is set in stone and I want to be transparent without shooting myself in the foot. Thanks!

Hi ladies! I’m going through a hard time - as the holidays are my favorite time of year. I’m starting to realize that giving gifts to my friends/family is GREAT... But I feel like everyone has everything. Has anyone done a large donation in their family members/friends names instead of doing Christmas gifts? Many families suffer every year. I’m struggling to justify my purchases now. I’d rather donate the money to charities supporting families that don’t have as much- advice?

I'm making a switch for the first time in my career. My new pay package will be 23 lpa. I heard froya senior that after all investments I'll still need to pay TDS around 4 lakhs.
Right now I'm planning to show
Home loan/rent (either one or both)
LTA (not sure if possible, will check)

Is there anything else I can use for tax exemption? I'm not going to go for EV emi or political party donation.

Please suggest what you do and I don't.
Thanks in advance.

How do you guys(those staying with parents at home) claim HRA for tax saving?

I joined Deloitte there, it's not allowed to put "relative" as your landlord and claim HRA even though you make rent agreement.

So I guess, my amount around ~1,80,000Rs of HRA won't be calculated automatically and TDS will happen.

I can, I believe, claim this while filing my IT Returns next year.

So question here is - what all evidence do I need to collate?

Receipts;? even Agreement is needed? What else?
