  • Maternity Leave Laws Georgia

    Hey guys, I just found out that I am 8 weeks pregnant and I couldnt be happier. The only problem is I just found out that the company I have been with for a year doesnt give maternity leave. Is there a law saying they have to give it to me?

    How many employees?
    Not everything that makes you mad, sad or uncomfortable is legally actionable.

    I am not now nor ever was an attorney.

    Any statements I make are based purely upon my personal experiences and research which may or may not be accurate in a court of law.

      How many employees does your employer have within a 75-mile radius of where you work? (at least 50?)

      Will you have worked for your employer for 1,250 hrs. in the 12 mos. immediately preceding the leave?
      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

          Neither Federal nor GA law requires them to provide maternity leave unless FMLA applies, and with only 10 employees FMLA does not apply. Sorry.

          Congratulations, though!
          The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
