I am a working parent with a young child at home and I am struggling to balance my responsibilities at work and at home. I was wondering if any of you could offer me some guidance on how to navigate workplace policies and benefits that are relevant to working parents, such as parental leave and flexible working hours.
I am particularly curious about whether or not it is possible to negotiate more flexible working hours with my employer and what steps I can take to make this happen. I am also interested in learning more about what kind of parental leave policies are commonly available to working parents, including the duration of leave and whether or not it is paid.
Any insights or advice are greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.
