For dads in CA, are we eligible for Paid Family Leave (paid by the state) in addition to the x weeks paid paternity leave our firms grant us?

No. Employer plans (“Voluntary Plans”) are instead of PFL. Actually the state pays your PFL to your employer to help fund your leave

^ that’s kind of BS on LEKs part. They’re trying to anchor your to 6 as “normal.” Most firms would just say “you get 8” and deal with PFL accounting on the back end

My firms pays for two weeks outside CA and when I was there the government paid for that so there was no extra time

For us LEK gave 6 weeks voluntary, and then we could’ve also used the paid family leave for the next 2 weeks if we wanted

Thanks all

Hi! I have a few questions on the backdoor Roth in which I’ve done a bit of research online. When it comes tax time, will my 401k vendor (Merrill) give me the correct documents?

I’m just nervous in the entire process as this is my first year doing this. TIA!!

I feel like my kids 1st grade teacher is being too strict, but I'm not sure if this is normal or I'm being sensitive because it's my child. E.g. she gave him 2/10 for his math homework because he doodled on the page, colored in the circle that has the page number, didn't draw the word problem neatly, wrote his last name under the name line, and says some of his numbers aren't legible. All his answers were correct, except one where he forgot to fill in the blank. Is this normal? X-posting

I am 9 months pregnant and my firm offers 16 weeks maternity leave.

Is it possible to accept the new job with a January start date, but not tell my current firm until a normal notice period ends, so I can keep mat leave? No payback requirements or anything. Would they know somehow?

I’m terrified of pregnancy but not of motherhood (except for the noise, kids are so loud).

Friend runs a company and hired a VP of Sales to help grow the business. Guy got some relocation $ and was supposed to start 2 months ago. Ever since he said his kid had an accident and from that point on kept pushing the start date back claiming he has to do something related to the accident. He hasn’t sent any proof to HR, has been requested twice claims he will but then doesn’t. And has pushed his start date back half a dozen times. How should I advice him to proceed?

Beginner and trying to get my finances in order. Income: $200k+. Maxed out 401k for the year. I have $60k in my savings account (just paid student debt off this year). I’ve searched the bowl… Are next steps: (a) invest (maybe $30k?) in ETFs and add to it each month, (b) open a HYS at HMBradley to hopefully get a high interest next quarter? I’m not convinced about the mega back door Roth (whether it makes sense for my situation) so putting in only a small amount there. Any thoughts? TIA!
