Today, one of my direct reports told me that she was pregnant. What is the rule of thumb here for when I should discuss her long term employment plans with her? Obviously this is an exciting time for her (her first child) and she has a lot to deal with outside of work. I don't want to immediately start asking her questions about how this is going to affect me, however - I need to know how this is going to affect me :)
If she doesn't bring it up, how much time should go by before it's safe for me to talk about?
