  3. Am I entitled to benefits when on maternity leave?
  4. Does my maternity leave affect my vacation time?

    Hello Nisha,
    Even if it doesn’t concern me right now I think the information you share on your blog really matter. We should all be informed for the day we need this, so we don’t get caught in the traps that exist regarding this matter. I hope your blog can inform everyone who might become a parent at some point! Keep up the good work! Amazing video, so insightful.
