Maternity Leave

What is your company policy on maternity?  I've recently stepped into the HR role at my company and we are updating our handbook and policies.  What does your comany offer?  Thanks!

Re: Maternity Leave

  • Policy?? I'm not sure I understand what you mean, so hopefully I answer it right. :)

    My company offers the standard: Short Term Disability (6 or 8 weeks depending on delivery method) and FMLA.

    Hope that helps

  • My companies Maternity leave policy (paid if you have purchase the short term disability plan/ if not- it is unpaid) is as follows:

    2 weeks prior to due date you are off

    6-8 weeks off after delivery (depending on method of delivery)

    Then we have a child care leave of absence (coincides with FMLA) that allows you to take up to the child's first birthday off. You can also utilize compressed work week or less than full time for that first year.

    HTH!

    this, though it was only 6 weeks even with a c-section.  We can also take our vacation time after mat leave.

  • My company sucks!

    They allow us the standard 6-8 weeks off without pay. That's it!

  • We do not offer Maternity leave. We do offer disability leave without pay. One month we will provide the same amount to your insurance and the employee covers the rest. 2 months employee pays all insurance. After that you will be terminated, unless other arrangements can be made. 

    FYI, Don't think my company is horrible. As the general manager if someone got pregnant (I am the only person that could), we would look at the policy again. We just didn't feel like it was necessary. If I need to hire a full-timer and thought pregnancy was a possibility, I would probably go the short-term disability insurance route. Also, small businesses can't really be with out employees for long periods of time. There are only 4 employees here. Not a lot we can do when we lose one.

  • Ours corresponds with FMLA (unpaid leave for up to 12 weeks).

    Nothing paid.

  • I work for a gigantic company, and after you have been with the company for 1 year, you get paid maternity leave.  I think you can take up to 12 weeks. 
  • I'd have to get my hand book out to fully explain it . . . but for the most part it works like this.

    The first two weeks off you must use, sick or vacation time, or take no pay.

    After that maternity/idemnity kicks in, based on how many years you have been with the company determines how many paid weeks off you get. I have been with the company for 6 years and am eligable for 11 paid weeks off. Your dr. still has to excuse the time off for you to take paid leave. So considering most doctors only recommend the 6-8 weeks depending on type of delivery that's really all I can take paid.

    So first two weeks sick/vaca/no pay.
    Next four to six weeks paid leave.
    Any time after that, unless excused by dr. would be no pay. (FMLA)
