16 is good. International Labor Org calls for 14 weeks and we should strive to be better than required

I believe 16 weeks as well (plus short term disability for mothers), but somebody correct me if I’m wrong

14/ 16 weeks (c-section), so 6 or 8 weeks short term disability and 8 weeks mat leave then whatever vacation time you have up to 6 months

D2, do you suspect this can lead to increased discrimination against hiring women? I have no data nor personal experience to substantiate this suspicion, just trying to put myself in an employers shoes. Losing an employee for a year seems extreme and very hard to manage for smaller businesses.

I’m in Canada, and there’s over a year of leave that can be shared between the two parents. At my firm I’ve seen this lead to a lot more fathers at the firm taking time off too rather than fewer females being hired

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.

Funding under 200 million (not big tech)If anyone is aware of policies that would be helpful in my argument please message me or drop a comment below with: 1. Name of start-up 2. Amount of current funding 3. Parental leave policy.

Advice/experiences please. About 5 weeks pregnant and feel like total trash... basically like I have a flu (but 99% sure I don’t, it’s just the pregnancy). Could I or should I try to take some sick days? It feels like that should be an option (esp now with covid and unlimited sick days) but I feel like I never hear of anyone doing this. I also don’t want to tell my work what the “sickness” is. I just finished a project so no one is relying on me right this second. What would you do?
