I’m curious how you’re on medical leave but can start ASAP......

EY1 starts off strong with the attention to detail!!

Give your notice to the Big 4 firm. You'll be glad you did.

likehelpful

Also curious how you were able to go through the interview process while on medical leave. I’d be prepared to discuss that when you give your notice.

likefunny

That was my point in the question of timing...giving notice while on medical leave looks like, well, you took time off to interview under the protection of medical leave. THAT is what would be very poor form.

like

Very poor form indeed. I’m sorry but the fact you’re interviewing while on medical leave seems a bit off. If you were my direct report I’d burn the bridge myself.

OP obviously we don’t know the details of your medical condition, but the curiosity is in the fact that while you are in medical leave you are giving your two weeks so you can start another job elsewhere right after you just got off medical leave. Just brings to question if you can actually start working before earlier than your indicated medical leave return date.

I went on the interviews before my short term leave but I received the offer during my leave. It put me in a weird situation

@op, this raises a lot of questions and the bridge is going to be burned. I really wouldnt give reason to why you are leaving the company because it only looks worse on your end

If the stress of the job put you on medical leave, big 4 isn't going to be any better

Also, if you're on medical leave you can just resign. All your work has been reassigned anyway

It is up to the doctor to write OP back into work. Sometimes you have to wait to get an appointment 🤷‍♀️

Hi all, Need your advice. One of our worker’s wife is fighting cancer. We know that he needs to take care of her and work the same time to cover medical bills. So we decided to collect money for him. Should I do it secretly and only let him know after I’m done collecting money or should I get his permission first? I need to figure out which way would be less uncomfortable for him. Thanks!
