    No, not specifically. Maternity leave should fall under the same guidelines as any other healthcare leave. Once an employee uses up their paid leave they should be (and are) eligible for unpaid leave under the FMLA.

      And under FMLA rules, all an employer has to do for an employee who has used up all their paid sick leave & vacation time & then wants to take maternity leave, is guarantee that the employee will have a job waiting (but maybe not the SAME job as before) when she returns from maternity leave.

    NO... They should not have to pay not ONE PENNY... ZERO... The employer is not the one who got laid and got her pregnant.. Employer should have to pay NOTHING.

      Where does it end?  Eventually, employers will be required to pay your rent, buy your groceries, wipe your butt...

    It can ruin a business;whereas, babies are necessary to our society as a whole because they are our future citizens. I believe that this is a VALID use for our nation's resources, instead of forking over billions to Jihadi Hadjis and shooting it off into outer space. We as a country should pay for maternity leave for our own citizens who are producing our new citizens. This is real, this is valid. There is more reason to support our own people than there is to support Pakistan, for instance.

    IF YOU can not afford a child then do not have them.  WHY in the holy hell should your employer have to pay for you spreading your legs and getting knocked up?

    If it is a negotiated benefit fine but just because in not a very good reason.  Isn't it good enough your freaking job is held and being done by everyone else so YOU can have a child YOU can not afford!

    What could you possibly learn that would be any different if I gave you my full name?  So you could harass me every time I reply to others.

    No. They shouldn't be forced to pay for something like that seeing as how this world is already grossly overpopulated

    NO. An employer should have the right to decide what benefits they will provide for their employees. If the employees don't like the benefits offered, they don't have to work there. The two parties have the option to negotiate. Why should an employer be forced to pay for a woman's choice to get pregnant in the first place, unless he helped her get that way?

    No, that would violate the employers contractual rights and property rights.
