Since the state of MA adopted a more formal leave program, BWH abides by this. There is also FMLA time that you can take.
Very basic. Usual corporate maternity leave time. I think a hospital should allow for more time
3 months maternity, paid as short term disability after 2 weeks
Not paid time off.
What maternity leave? They do not provide any, and employees are forced to use a third party insurance agency who will pay them a certain percentage of their actual salary. For a hospital, this lack of a policy is offensive.
12 weeks of FMLA for moms and 8 weeks of paternity for dads (Mass state law). First two weeks of maternity leave are covered by vacation time and weeks 3-8 are covered by disability insurance. The remaining time is covered by vacation time. Paternity leave is purely vacation time.
They allow 12 weeks. They call you a few times on leave to see if you are coming back sooner. That's annoying.
You first use two weeks of your vacation time for 100% pay for two weeks, and then they only offer 4 weeks at 60% pay leave, for six weeks total. Not great.
Good, BWH offers Maternity and Paternity Leave
I know employees have Maternity & Paternity Leave but research labs are so busy usually I don't take it.
