Anyone have any advise on getting your company to update their paid family leave ? Ours is really out of date. We are based in Arlington and our policy is 10 paid family leave days, then short term disability for 6-8 weeks, with then up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave. This hinders working families and single parents as well. Emailed HR and I keep sharing research on the benefits of expanding our policy. Any and all advice is helpful.
Anyone else thinking marriage is a total sham?

A friend’s having a holiday party at her apt, and I’m feeling torn about going with the increase in omicron cases. 18 people going now (originally smaller). Think typical old NYC apartment, small gathering space. Everyone is vaxxed, not sure about boosted. No plans to have people test or wear masks. Not concerned as much about getting sick myself as transmitting to others (may be seeing elderly parents next week). Just curious how others have been approaching these situations. (Be nice please)

Is there generally a penalty if you give your resignation while you’re out on short term disability or FMLA? My employee handbook doesn’t say anything and HR won’t give me any info.
