DO I HAVE THE RIGHT TO TAKE TIME OFF WHEN I HAVE A BABY - AND IS THAT TIME PAID?

Do I have the right to take time off when I have a baby

If you are an employee and having a baby, you may have the right to take leave under your employer’s policies, state law, or the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

For example, if your employer provides time off for parenting or pregnancy, you may use that leave if you are eligible. Even if your employer doesn’t provide pregnancy leave, you may be entitled to take time off during the time you are unable to work due to pregnancy if your employer provides leave for other temporary disabilities.

The FMLA requires employers of 50 or more employees to give covered employees up to 12 weeks of leave per year to care for a new child. FMLA leave is unpaid, but you may use your accrued paid leave during FMLA leave, as long as you meet the requirements imposed by your employer. You may also file and qualify for disability pay and collect disability income while you are on pregnancy leave.
