I am currently on maternity leave but really worried regarding layoff. I want to start looking for a new job and was wondering what’s the typical policy for number of months/ days one has to work after maternity leave to avoid paying back maternity leave benefits to the company.

KPMG should have some written policies around this on your company intranet. At Deloitte it’s 30 business days after returning from leave to not have to pay back leave benefits.

I don’t know that there is a period or repayment, at least in the US. I left my job 6 weeks after returning from maternity leave with my first, and didn’t have any issues. Look over the policy (both your company’s leave policy and any documentation provided regarding short term disability).

I’ve been submitting applications because my company has been doing layoffs and pay cuts. I was informed yesterday that they will be doing additional pay cuts starting next week. First my bonus was cut by 60% and now they have mentioned they are going to cancel it altogether. When interviewing for new positions how should I explain why I’m looking for a new job even though I still (at least currently) have a job, just major pay cuts?

Misled on Maternity Leave Policy. I found out I only get 4 weeks pay for maternity leave (STD +“sick days”). I will take 12 weeks but wont get paid for 8 weeks. I work for a US, west coast based company in the tech/VC industry. Their website claims to offer “paid parental leave and other progressive benefits for parents”. I didn’t find out until after I was hired their pay was only 8 weeks but since I have been at the company less than 12 months, I don’t qualify for their policy. Is this unfair?

Any insight from Deloitte folks on the announced layoffs? Has anyone from PwC or KPMG heard anything similar? EY has left the door open for layoffs, but hasn’t laid out specific plans yet. It feels inevitable though. While I don’t think I’m on the chopping block (famous last words), I do worry about the morale impact on my teams and the office in general. Curious to hear other perspectives.

Hi Fishes, Need help with a tax query. I am earning 85k/month now. Thinking to purchase a land of around 15L, not just for investment but to build our own house on it in future. Though I can somehow manage it without taking a land loan. But I was wondering if I can take some to avail tax benefits. So my doubts are - Can I avail tax benefits (like home loan) before construction? If I take the loan just to enjoy tax benefits then how much loan should I take at most? Have only ~68k EPF in 80C

I am struggling with my role& supervisor. Few months ago I was asked to take on someone else’s responsibilities as they went on maternity leave, I took those on on top of my full-time role andI excelled. I went above and beyond and outperformed what was asked of me. Instead of getting any sort of recognition for this I was instead told to stay in my lane even though I was tasked with this work. feeling undervalued, anytime I try to meet with my supervisor it’s canceled. It’s been since March!
