How do bonuses work if you took parental leave during the year? Do hours get prorated or do you still need to hit the normal threshold?
Hello! A senior associate that I work for is expecting and she will be going on parental leave soon.

(We aren’t incredibly close so it doesn’t seem as easy as shopping for a friend/family member who just had a baby, if that makes sense) TIA!

I took a positive pregnancy test this morning (yay!) after a four-day vacation that involved way more than my fair share of drinking. I’d taken a pregnancy test the day I left for vacation and it was negative.

Please tell me I’m not the only one who has experienced this and whether my anxiety is warranted!
