Anyone know how much time dad gets off for birth of child? Boss saying 3 days thought it was 5 days.
No sorry total leave paid and unpaid thanks
FMLA, take as much time as you want. I took 3 weeks when mine was born. Your boss is full of crap.
I think you can get 6 or 12 through fmla, not 100% on that
Fmla gives you 12 weeks. If you are in CA, you get 6 of those weeks paid.
I took 4 weeks for my first kid. I think I only took a couple days for the second one.
Thanks for the info everyone
Nothing paid, take intermittent FMLA. Then you can take off any days needed but unpaid, for a year. If you take weeks you must use your available vaca and you may hold back one week of it.
You can't do intermittent fmla with the birth of a child. It can only be for caring for a sick relative
You may be right...I thought it was for any family medical need.
You don't have to take it all at once. You can break it up, but only up to 1 year after the birth of your child.
Thats what I said, intermittent, so you can take a day here, or there for tests, etc. Important medical days. But I only took it for sick relatives, but I thought it was also for child birth.
Yes it is also for child birth.
Correct, you can take several " blocks of time", but single days doesn't work, unless the woman who set up my fmla lied to me, or more likely didn't know what the hell she was talking about
We had lots of people abusing it with the single day bs. Management put a stop to that.
More than likely she didn't know what she is talking about or just didn't want to give you individual days off.
Management does not have the authority to deny a valid fmla.
It was a lot of single day bs. Scheduling doctors appointments on Friday and such.
They denied them and that was that.
Didn't know fmla was only valid on Tuesday through Thursday?
But if you take FMLA will you get insurance? With the new insurance being so sketchy that would suck to take FMLA and not get all the follow up baby visits covered.
