    Maternity leave is the minimum permitted by law; 6 weeks. If you take more, you have to take vacation, or use short term disability, so you don't get paid your full salary. In addition, if you do take more than you are likely to loose your job, because every year around performance review time in September/October, the bank's management (in Canada) looks at an employees absences. If an employee has been absent on family leave for more than 6 weeks it raises a red flag and that employee will be flagged. When it comes to deciding on bonuses, raises that employee will not receive as much, or will receive nothing. When they (the bank) restructures teams and jobs, which happens every 3-6 months that employee will likely get "restructured".
