Rights to Leave for Pregnant Employees

Rights to Leave for Pregnant Employees

Pregnant employees who work for larger employers are entitled to time off for pregnancy, childbirth, and bonding with a new child under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

The FMLA requires employers with 50 or more employees to provide eligible employees with up to 12 weeks of unpaid time off for the following purposes:

for prenatal care
while unable to work due to pregnancy
for a serious health condition following childbirth, and
to bond with a new child.
