    If I can make a distinction here, some states such as CA have state tax sponsored paid disability leave, which include maternity leave.

    I would agree that no state as far as I know requires that employers provide paid leave for maternity.

    The others are correct. There is no law in any state that requires STD or paid maternity.

    At least you're checking now. You can always purchase your own disability policy.

    I live in New Mexico and I work for one of the largest school districts in the country, Albuquerque Public Schools. I am planning on becoming pregnant and I am shocked to discover that APS offers no paid maternity leave AND no Short Term Disability. If one is a member of our Teacher's Union, one can join a "leave bank" in which members donate sick leave time and others can use it in the case of an extended absence of some kind. However, there is one exception to being able to take advantage of this: maternity leave. Can this be legal??? I am sole breadwinner at home - husband is full time student!

    Thank you!
    While I am very surprised that your Union contract did not secure those benefits for you, no employer is required to give benefits to their employees.

    I am not sure if the Union's leave bank is required to treat Maternity leave the same as any other leave however. An employer who offered something to its employees who are out due to a surgery would be required to offer the same for medically approved maternity leave for example. I am unsure about the leave bank however. There are a few others who post here that may know more about the Union issue.
