Edit: sounds like I was wrong...amzn should reduce my benefit.Why is AMZN stealing my new WA Paid Family Leave benefit?
Posting again in HR>>>
EDIT: It is clear that my understanding of the new benefit was not popular. Thanks for the input!!.
Background: Amazonian in Seattle, non-tech, new father, 6 YOE, 170 TC
I'm off in January for paternity leave. Amazon has historically offered 6 weeks paternity leave as a benefit. Washington state started a new family leave benefit of $1000/wk beginning in 2020. Both are awesome individually... Here is my rub:
I got an email from Amazon HR saying (paraphrased) "you need to apply for the new Washington benefit and use them concurrently bc we are reducing your benefit by $1000/wk"
Anyone else experiencing this? I'm going to let it simmer for a while but contemplating taking this to the news.
