Recent Paid Maternity Leave questions

I've been with my company years as a salaried employee in a

I've been with my company for 5 years as a salaried employee in a senior level position. My husband was recently promoted to a position out of state. I'd like to keep my job working remotely, also I'm pregnant. I haven't told my employer either of those things yet. Do I tell my employer I'm pregrant first? Then tell them about the move and my request to work remotely? Or reverse? Or neither? I'd really like to maintain my job especially to keep my maternity benefits. Also my job is completely able to be remote and I work from home 1 day a week currently.

I live in Austin, TX. The company I work Headquartered in

I live in Austin, TX. The company I work for is Headquartered in Boston, MA. I am pregnant and due end of Oct. My pay is 50:50. 50% salary and 50% commission. The company says that they default to the state laws regarding maternity leave that I reside in. They are telling me I can only get salary during my maternity leave and NOT commission of all the potential deals that will come in in my absence. Is this correct?How long do I have to legally take off after delivering a healthy baby? Could I come back in 2 weeks with Dr's approval/ note?

I have a client that filed a disability claim

Hi I have a client that filed a disability claim for maternity leave , it was filed late , mainly they didn't know about this benefit. She is self employed and has her own business so they lack resources to find out about these benefits. The State of CA EDD denied her claim for failure to file within the 41 day period. The form fails to mention this deadline. The next step is to file an appeal to EDD to determine good cause. Also EDD phone line has been impossible to reach for disability questions. Please help us determine the best approach to deal with this issue. Thx again, Peter

I am pregnant and due in early December, and am eligible for

I am pregnant and due in early December, and am eligible for FMLA and a 6 week paid maternity leave by my employer in Indiana. I am moving to Texas and will begin a new job in early November and am doing so in order to secure this position following the birth of my baby. The new employer is very understanding of my situation and will allow an unpaid leave for three months. My question is in regard to dual employment status: Am I allowed to take vacation from my current employer until the birth (I have plenty of vacation days banked), take an FMLA sick leave for 6-8 weeks followed by the paid 6 week maternity leave, while beginning a job with a new employer for a couple of weeks while in vacation status with my current employer? Insurance coverage is not at issue. Thank you.

I work for a nonprofit company with less than 50 employees.

I work for a nonprofit company with less than 50 employees. they do not provide paid maternity leave and only allow for 6 weeks off. I was just informed that my responisblities will be cut when i come back from maternity leave. I am a "team lead" a "level 3" employee, I have worked my way up to this level over the 3 years I have worked there. I have receive PERFECT scores on all my reviews. and was told that my duties will...pretty much be a "level 1" employee when i return...i am in the process of arguing this with HR and the head of the department. This just doesn't seem right to me. there is NOTHING in my file giving reason that i should be "demoted" however my pay will not be lowered as i have been told. Now i was told because of the size of our company..rules are different..i am very confused and don't want to feel cheated. The other thing is the amount of time off...i was told they are only required to hold my job for 6 weeks... please help. J
