How Do I Request to Work While on Maternity Leave?

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. (@kgrantcareers) Q#253 Highlight the benefits (you know the work, proven track record, etc.). Ask for a 1 week trial/test. (@beneubanks) Q#253 Bring up the topic one on one with your manager. If they are interested, prepare a proposal which outlines the benefits. (@gradversity) Q#253 Approach from emp perspective & list benefits 2 them. Ex: Save cost in temp salary. It's all about them.
