Dear Experts, How do I request a part time work from home schedule in lieu of full maternity leave? (e.g. one month maternity leave, and two months of part-time work-from-home, for 3 months total?) I meet federal, state and company policy for maternity leave and work can be done remotely. But how can I show it is beneficial for us both? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#253 4 Maternity leave, see if u can find someone that tried this b-4, if not, create plan and propose benefits 2 mgr.
