Why does such a successful business not provide BETTER maternity leave for their employees than just the FMLA? I've been with this company for almost 8 years and work myself to the bone and take good pride in my job, but yet I'll have to take my vacation that I have worked so hard for and my PTO time off in order to still be able to get paid when I do take maternity leave.
If all I took was just the FMLA I would lose my house and my bills wouldn't get paid. If I were rich the FMLA wouldn't bother me a bit, but I'm not and it does. I just feel that such a "christain company" would look after their faithful employee's alot better.
I don't feel that I'm asking for much, but some payment for maternity leave is better than nothing if it means that it will keep food on the table. Thank you for your time.
