    When an employee takes maternity or paternity leave the employer takes all available vacation and sick hours from them first before the leave pay kicks in. Where it hurts the employee is if the employee had a child in the first half of the year. When they return to work they have zero vacation or sick hours because the employer took every remaining our at the start of their leave. If they're returning from their leave of absence in summer or otherwise long before the vacation renewal hours in January, but still need to be taking their infant to frequent well baby visits, the employee must take care of their infant without pay until the vacation hours renew on January 1st. It creates an unhealthy work/life balance and potentially puts the employee at financial risk, having to choose whether to take care of their new infant's health visits or skip them so they can be at work and not miss wages.

    we have FMLA and as a form of compensation we have to use our sick and vacation time. Once you have no time left it is unpaid leave and you come back with no more paid time off

    Expeditors is a bonus compensation structure for most employees above desk & entry level. Employees pay for a short term disability & maternity leave option out of pocket monthly. Even with that, only 75% of you base salary is given...which I'd imagine is especially tough for new families.
