Actually, my company, which is in the medical industry, says you can use our short-term disability policy for pregnany. Sure it’s a bad term (pregnancy is no disability!), but whatever, if it’s available why not. I assume it’s quite different outside of the US though.

In the US genearlly maternity leave is qualifiable for short-term disability.
Some states are required to offer short-term disability… Also, you should check the HR website for the university, they usually have a seperate set of info for research foundation positions, at least that’s how it is for my DH’s work.

Cool. Fair enough, if it’s actyally part of policy, not a sneaky way, thays great! At least OP has options 🙂 is it paid or just time off?

I didn’t have any maternity leave either. I was off for about 7 weeks with my daughter. Thankfully we could fall back on sone taxes during that time.

I’m an adjunct professor. I don’t get any maternity leave either, and I will have to take an entire quarter off since I can’t just leave part way through a term. I’m just hoping the timing works out when I do get pregnant.
