Is it normal for a company not to provide paid maternity leave? They said it’d be paid by the state under FMLA for 3 months. Is the FMLA benefit payment taxable?

Fmla is taxable and subject to a cap. Having no paid company maternity leave outside what the state requires is not uncommon and is why everyone should ask what maternity benefits are before they accept any offers, even if you don't currently plan to have kids. If more people started turning down job offers because they don't have maternity leave, companies would be more likely to change policies.

Thanks

First, FMLA isn’t paid leave. FMLA is job protected leave. Second, statutory disability pay comes from the state and varies in length, dollars and taxes. Many of the states also have paid family leave for after the disability period. Again, the length, dollars and taxes vary by state.

Do you know whether you have Short Term Disability through your company? What state are you in? Might matter if you live in one but are mapped to another (i.e. live in NJ but mapped to NY).

For my company (in New York) I get 12 weeks maternity. Fmla covers 60% for 10 weeks, and my company covers the difference. So I get a check from my company twice a month, and a check from fmla every week, which total my normal pay. After 10 weeks my company will pay the full amount.

The fmla portion doesn't appear to be taxed when looking at the pay stub but I don't really understand taxes so I could be wrong. They may be taking the full tax allocation out of my company paycheck (no idea really).

The way your company handles maternity leave is much better

I just took maternity leave and came back; seems like Deloitte paid 16-weeks plus FMLA

Hard pass.

Are you in WA state? PFML would cover 3 months, and from what I'm told it is unclear as to whether it is taxable or not.
