I work at a new, small firm. We get 10 days of PTO. For family/medical leave, we get 20 days paid and then 20 days unpaid. But policy says we have to take our PTO concurrently with paid family/medical leave. That’s weird, right? It’s like you end up losing paid leave days. It makes sense to do it concurrently with unpaid leave but not paid leave, right?
Tell me if this is selfish or not. I adore my family, but since they're doing a very lowkey Christmas situation this year, I really would rather take a weeks vacation on my own. Obviously the holidays are about spending time with those you love, but I'm tired! And I see my entire family at least once a month for a group dinner. Am I a bad daughter/sister if I choose vacation this one time?
Hey guys - I’ve recently returned to work from 8 months of maternity leave. I love where I work but some things I experienced while away made returning to work not as easy as it could have been. I want to help similar colleagues and also help the business with retention of staff so I’m volunteering to work on a maternity leave communication strategy with our HR Director. My question for you is - what did you or didn’t you like about how your work treated you when you had time off to have kids?
Please clarify for me. I say if the salary for the position is $52,000, that's what you include when posting the job opening. Ie: Marketing Assistant: $52K. My supervisor says no, the salary is actually 74,000, because she's including health benefits and PTO on top of the 52.. I said if you post 74,000 and the person finds out it's actually 52 (probably with a take home pay of only 38) they will walk. Who's right?
I have an employee who had birth complications due to a baby being premature. They were excited to finally go home with the baby but after the baby was released for a couple of days they were sent back to the hospital. The employee was supposed to start their official FMLA leave when the baby was released. With the back and forth complications what kind of note, if at all would be best to have on file so I can properly track FMLA hours? They will run out of PTO in a couple of days.
A bit off topic: Suggestions on ideas for things to do on a long weekend from NYC? Hoping to take some vacation days this year (as I, like many, took just a couple of days off last year)... open to renting a car. Thank you!!
Hi…question for CVS workers, how many days of pto a new employee usually gets? Thank you
Being a realtor is not what I expected! I was so excited when I joined being younger, but nowadays it's all work and too little time off. It's a bit frustrating because I'm not sure where to go from here. I've been doing this for 5 years now. Any help on what choice to make? I do not have a backup plan.
I’m seeing on linked in about KPMG remote EBP only audit jobs. Anyone can give me an insight on the work life, pay, pto etc… greatly appreciated as I’m thinking of applying.
I really need leave for two weeks. My project does not have long leave policy but it has strict target policy. The last best leave I took was for 4 days only. I really need a long leave so I can have a vacation atleast once. it's been 3 years I worked in my current project. Never taken a long leave. Plz suggest me good ideas. I'm not sick but getting depressed day by day.
Is the EY 16 week maternity pay 100% of the salary ? I was reading the FAQs and could not find anything that said 100 % of pag provided in the 16 weeks of eligible time off.

How is the job market for all of the MBBs when it comes to experienced analyst-equivalent hires? I recently got referrals in for all three but wondering if I should I spend time over the holidays on case and behavioral prep even though I don’t have an interview yet. I’m a bit burned out so would love to spend the holiday time to recharge but will certainly put prep first if I need to do so. Any insight would be so tremendously appreciated!
Would you take time off after you got your green card (i.e. quit) before finding a another job? I know it's a risk, but with the option available, seems like it's not so bad...

What’s the norm on giving a holiday gift ($$$) to paralegals? The paras I work with have been here for many years and tbh are considerably more knowledgeable and useful to the firm than I am - not sure if it’s expected, or weird/condescending to give them a gift.

Earlier i was hired to work on testing/automation but after joining training was never given on that and they took me in an internal project which i wasn't aware of. After working for more than a year i want to switch to testing, so I requested the same to a higher official. They said we can't switch you to testing as you don't have training but we can take you later on and give you training side by side with your current project. Should I believe them or switch the company. Please help PwC
