If you’re a full time employee it shouldn’t register on either of those because you remain an employee during the leave

Yes to CP1’s answer. Doesn’t show up to anyone externally or in background checks.

And doesn’t come up in reference checks if they reach your HR department, they only additionally confirm you were employed and a title or level.

You remain an employee while on leave and be sure to include those months in total years of service!!!

I might need to term an employee for performance (located in CA). The term meeting will be conducted remotely via Zoom with her manager as well so he can go over the term reasons and I will be covering HR stuff (term paperwork, benefits, paycheck, COBRA, etc). It will be my first time terminating someone, let alone doing this virtually. Any advice?

After my first child was born, it was clear that staying home full time wasn't for me. Now, she is in preschool and my second is 1.5 and still home.

Changes to our childcare arrangements have me feeling I need to stay home now rather than waiting. Has anyone found themselves in a similar situation with similar doubts?
