Deloitte moms, I need your guidance. For some reason, someone (not sure which team) has marked my maternity leave (LOA) starting next week on DTE and I can’t update it to show PTO. I have repeatedly told the Leaves team and MetLife that I’m not starting LOA until the baby comes (due date 10/31, no baby yet). Whom do I contact to fix the DTE issue? If this happened to you, what did you do?

I’m currently a senior accountant and I mainly focus on accruals and expense analysis. Prior to this role I was in State & Local Tax.

I actually kind of miss the work that I used to but also found tax can be very mentally challenging. I’m struggling with trying to decide if I should go back to tax or maybe use my current experience to go into FP&A or a Finance related role. Advise please!

Recently lateraled and at my former firm one of my female coworkers just got back from maternity leave. The firm has a billable requirement of 2000 hours and those who go on parental leave have a prorated requirement based on leave taken. She just told me that the bonus is also prorated so even though she met the reduced requirement she will only get 60% of the bonus. Is this standard?
