This is a sequal to my previous thread.
I am sure someone has been down this road before or have been in a similar situation. My wife is 5 months pregnant, we are going to be accepting an offer 300 miles away. She will be able to draw a full paycheck at her current job for ten weeks(utilizing her sick/vacation time) once her doctor tells her she can't work anymore. Somewhere in there she will also need to do her two weeks notice and rip out of there. Need some scenarios on how we could transition her out of her job and at the same time take her leave. And we have a five year old that needs to start school the last week of August where we are moving to.

I don't get why she will be using her sick/vacation time for the next 10 week. She has another 4/5 months left of her pregnancy. Can't she just work up until you move? When you are two weeks from the move have her give her two weeks. If she accrued the vacation they should have to pay her. Most companies don't pay out for sick leave.

Because she will be going on maternity leave and use the ten weeks of sick/vacation time accrued and get paid a full check for ten weeks.

Didn't you say that you were going to enroll your 5 year old in school at the end of August in your new location? What am I missing? Didn't you also say that your new insurance will accept her being pregnant? Is she staying behind while you move first?

Agreed Hoyt, not quite understanding your question. Maybe if you could clarify it?

I think you need to provide a timeline of what you're doing.

It looks like you are wanting to move your wife to your new location, but tell her employer that she is actually unable to work during her pregnancy, so she can move with you and still collect a paycheck. While this may seem like a good idea, it's pretty shortsighted and bound to backfire on you.
