Milk Your Benefits helps expectant parents maximize their maternity and paternity leaves in the state of California. I also work with companies that offer my service as a benefit to their employees.
How much job-protected time off and income am I entitled to when I take my maternity leave? How long is maternity leave in California? How does maternity leave work? What California maternity leave laws will apply to me? These are tough questions that need individualized answers.
Too often Human Resources simply hands over a pile of paperwork and doesn't explain all of the nuances of the maternity leave and benefits to which you are entitled. Pregnancy leave laws in California are extremely generous but also challenging to implement together with company policies. If guidance is provided, it's often hard to understand or incorrect, and you run the risk of leaving income or time on the table.
Whether you work for a large corporation or a small business, you deserve the personalized attention that is needed to understand how each component of your maternity leave in California fits together.
Contact me to ensure that you are able to enjoy every possible moment with your newborn, even if you decide not to return to work.
