Resigning on parental leave: how much notice should I give? I know two weeks is standard but I truly don’t have any work to transition while on parental leave. Any risk to them dropping me off payroll immediately? For context, it is a big4 strategy practice.

Why are you resigning? If you don’t mind sharing, it is a permanent scenario or will you be back in the work force a year from now? If the latter, maybe request an unpaid leave of absence? Either way, enjoy with your kid. My beat memories are when I spent time with my kid when he was born.

Big, reputable firms don’t generally drop people off the payroll immediately when notice is given. It sets a bad precedent. So while there is no legal requirement for the firm to pay out a notice period, any big 4 firm almost certainly will. The specifics of your parental leave may matter more — some parental leaves require you to come back for a period of time.

No - EY does not require you to come back. I think Deloitte makes you work for ~2 weeks. But I know EY does not, nor do they make you pay anything back

I know EY honors 2-week pay stub even if you get walked out right away; suppose other b4 does the same

Mamas, have you asked for a roll off or less responsibilities on your current project due to pregnancy symptoms like morning sickness?

I am due to take 2 weeks parental leave sometime in the next month and have an offer lined up. Is it better to tell the new place I would prefer to push my start date to take my leave and join two weeks after (accounting for 2 weeks of notice when I get back)? Would that be burning a bridge with current firm (taking leave and giving notice as soon as I am back)? I want to avoid losing 2 weeks of salary during that time if I can.

Baby moon in Hawaii? We've been WFH home all year with only weekly trips to the grocery store. Thinking of taking a week off for a safe secluded baby moon in a Maui Airbnb or limited capacity resort in March. Doctor recommended "no unnecessary travel" so feeling conflicted. Won't be able to travel much after baby arrives for the first few years. Likely will have a second baby right away so this might be my last chance for next 5 years.

Due to some room mate shifting I am going to shift from paying 900 a month to about 1300. Only other option was getting a single for 1400, I live in a low cost of living city so didn’t think getting a studio would be worth it consider I work from home. Total compensation will be just other 90k this year. Any tips for making sure I stay on the FIRE PATH? Concerned that I’m now forking over an extra 5k after tax in rent and realizing that losing potential room mates has huge financial implication

We are closer to the end of this initial selling than the beginning. All this technical selling on a 15 minute chart simply brings us back to a 4 Hour Halfway Back long of May 20 to Highs. And, we find support right in the middle of this HWB long. I think we can go a little lower to break the long in a dip below the 61.8% red line. Alternatively, we can hold here and rally. Either way, tomorrow or next week, we are due to rally 300 Nasdaq points. Take profits and be smart.
