Hoping the ladies (or men with relevant expereince) can help me out here. I am in an exec position with a company and my employer is well aware that I will be more than likely trying to get pregnant eventually....(sooner than they think, or then I let on). They are very interested in accomodating me if I wish to work during my leave. Basically- they dont want me taking a year off. So now I need to figure out some creative options. Reaching out to those who have had a similiar expereince- did you work from home? were you able to defer pay until you returned to work (and collected EI while off), did you work part time (financial pro's and con's and impact with EI)? what did you do for childcare? Are there places that allow part time daycare with pay per use vs. contract?
My current idea is to possibly NOT be physically present in the office for atleast 8 wks. I think I would be ok answerwing emails within a couple of weeks....though not sure. Return to the office 1 a week by month 3? Attend our monthly exec meetings each month.Possibly consider 2 days a week at month 6??
Any ideas welcome. Not doing it for the money, though it wont hurt. Mostly because I 'think' I want to.
