It's nice to do favors for people who are going through something stressful, like a pregnancy. But what if it comes at the expense of your own time off?

The practice of donating sick and vacation days to pregnant co-workers is becoming somewhat commonplace, but not everyone's into it. A woman recently took to Reddit to ask if it was okay for her to refuse to do this in her own workplace, after co-workers said she was being mean.

The woman's company doesn't provide maternity leave:

I(24F) work as tech support in a telecom company. They don’t provide paid maternity leave but “fundraises” whenever a pregnant women needs time off. We all get 2 weeks vacation 5 sick days and 3 PTO but my pregnant coworker used up some of it already.

The boss is asking people to "donate" their time:

So my boss asked everyone to “donate” and most people have given a day but I used up a week of vacation and PTO days already and I’m leaving in July to visit family and booked a full week (9 days if you count the weekends).
