I know my coworker secretly plans to quit after her maternity leave. We have a temp coming in to transition her work during her leave from June to October. I think taking months of maternity leave pay and benefits, knowing you are going to quit shortly thereafter (within 2 months), is robbery and a truly bad thing to do. That said, even if you told HR, they can’t deny her the ability to use her leave, so her plan will go forward anyway.
