Have any of you taken FMLA leave due to a positive COVID case for a member of your household? My husband just tested positive for COVID and I am not sure yet if my 2 toddlers have it. In any event, even if they are healthy, they can’t go back to daycare for awhile so childcare is all on me. I’m wondering if I should apply for FMLA leave so I don’t completely crash my hours, but I am also not sure whether this situation qualifies for FMLA.
For those that have been job searching prior to Covid how difficult is the current hiring climate vs. the one prior to Covid?
I’ve been observing the bowl as a 🇨🇦 🐠 for a couple weeks now and I’ve realized 🇺🇸 needs to get off the internet.

Y’all are going to break yourself or the world with this kind of nonsense. Geez you’re stressing me out...I’m going to go take a break now 🚬 🌳

Thinking of scrapping CPA plans for now and going to applying to law schools with accounting bachelors. With a 3.3 gpa is it possible to get into a good enough law school? Am I being ridiculous? Would love insights of people that might have gone through a similar position. Why did you stay as a CPA? Why did you go to law school? Was Law School as useful as you thought it would be?

Also, do you then submit your timesheet from different location if you do or do not get the approval?
