Maternity leave question - what happens to your vacation days when you are out on mat leave? Do you get to use them at a future date after your leave is over?

Not sure about EY, but what I understand from Deloitte is that leave and vacation are separate. So when using leave, your accrued vacation stays as is, however you won't accrue additional vacation so it literally stays where it is. When you return you can use whatever you have before the leave.


Ah, thanks D2. My thoughts were based on a seasonal eave of absence I took where I didn't continue to accrue vacation, so I guess it's different.

OP, for the 16 weeks fully paid maternity leave we accrue vacation time. And yes after you're done with disability time, ey 16 weeks, and family bonding time(if you're in CA) then you can use your PTO or sick days to stay with your baby longer just make sure your arms is updated.

Thanks EY1!

Can I potentially work parental leave into negotiations?

Moms any advice? My husband will take a paternity leave mid this year to help me out but his company’s (big 4) year end promotion happens when he’s on leave. He has been on track to be promoted to sr manager (of course nothing guaranteed)— should he ask his manger the question “will the promotion decision be impacted by my leave?” We know the answer probablywill be “no” which doesn’t necessarily mean it’s zero impact in reality. Or, asking this question makes him look bad? Con’t
