OP, PwC has a really generous leave policy. Are you looking only at the short term disability time, or are you a new ish hire who doesn't meet the eligibility for longer paid leave?

Maternity leave, in common usage, comprises all forms of paid leave that stack together for that period. At many firms, this is a combination short term disability and parental leave paid directly by the firm. The difference between those is just an accounting one on the backend

If you're the person who physically gave birth, you get short term disability of 6 or 8 weeks. That gets added to the 8 wks of parental leave that any new parent gets. In total I think that's generous, and yes it combines two mechanics of leave, but the end result is good, no? Plus, you can add vacation time on top of that, if desired.

6 weeks for regular delivery, 8 weeks for cesarean. Then an additional 12 for parental bonding. So 18-20 for mother’s, 12 for fathers.

18 weeks paid and up to 12 months unpaid. We are quite lucky 🇦🇺

D1, cmon read the policy. We get 16 weeks.

Sounds about right, we get 8 weeks I think + 16 family leave. At least you get 8 and they are paid most people in the US only qualify for 6 weeks unpaid. #america

Manager 1: Not new; I just thought the actual maternity leave would be longer without having to combine other leave times, etc.

16 weeks

Thanks for the insight - appreciate it!

EY gives 16 weeks to females AND males if you’re the primary caregiver!

At PwC you can add additional 4 weeks vacay and 6 weeks unpaid (4 weeks for c-section) for a total of up to 26 weeks

Starting in 2019 we're increasing all the way up to 4 weeks from 2. Hooray!

BA, I really hope this is for paternity/ non primary caregiver and/ or sarcasm

Am I overreacting in this scenario? My aunt passed away this week. The entire extended family is vaccinated and coming together this weekend for her memorial gathering & funeral. My older sister flew in from NYC and didn’t tell anyone that she had a fever the past few days. She has not been tested for Covid, and exposed my father who picked her up from the airport. He is making her get a Covid test today. I don’t think she should attend any event & potentially expose older family members. AITA?
