Apply for sick leave while pregnant


I have seen a lot of women who just stop working before their maternity kicks in as they apply for temporary sick leave.

Do you guys know how it works out and how do you apply for it?

If you want to get short term disability (i.e. wife has to be on bed rest as per doctor). You or your manager will need to start a case with your insurance company by calling them first, then they will ask you and your doc to fill out a form and then they will let you know if you qualify or not.

They could be using up their vacation days. Also, the manager could be allowing them to use up their sick days even though they're not "sick". Just ask your manager if you can use up your sick days first and then use some vacation days. Assuming your manager is not an jerk then I'm sure something can be worked out.
