Ive been on preventive leave since February so nothing much changes, but as of today I am on Maternity leave!! The added bonus? My salary goes up!
Preventive leave was based on last years salary and my workload of 80%. Mat leave is the standard Canadian 55% (maximum of $700 every two weeks I think of actual check?) plus I am topped off to 92% by my employer for six months. Since I have a workload of 100% this year and a salary increase of $5000, it equals about $500 a month more in my pocket (and trust me I need it!!)
woot woot for maternity leave!!
