I get paid commissions(monthly payout) and bonuses(quarterly payout) in my job. It is based on a group effort with my other sales reps, not individual. When I went on leave with dd, I was paid these. Back then, it was based on revenue for that month, not booked sales like it currently is.
During FMLA, I was going to use vacation(about 2 weeks) and sick time(about a month) during this time. My boss told me today that I will not be paid commission and bonuses during my leave. If we(non-pregnant people) were to use vacation or sick time normally, we would still be paid.
Do I have raging pregnancy hormones or am I right feeling this is wrong that they will not pay me?
I am thinking about getting creative about my vacation and sick time and just taking it after my 12 weeks vs. during. And hoping to get paid out that way.
I hope this makes sense. Let me know what you think. I am going to my boss's boss about this now. So, maybe this will get resolved in my favor, but I am not holding my breath.
One more reason I want to fight for paid maternity leave in this country!!!
