i just finalized the conditions of my maternity leave and post leave work schedule.
i will be off on maternity leave for 8 weeks (2 weeks @ 100% pay, 4 weeks at 50% pay, 2 weeks unpaid).
when I come back i'll be in the office 3 days p/week, working from home one day and totally off one day.
that will last for a month.
then for the following 3 months after that i will work 4 days a week in the office. i hope to re-negotiate at that time so that my 4 day p/week schedule is permanent.
i asked for a bit more time to work from home but they wouldn't budge on that. i'm just happy for what i was able to negotiate though!
