  • Pregnancy Leave in CA

    One more question. If someone takes the PDL Leave for 4 months (1 month prior and 3 months after), do they need a doctor's note putting them out for this whole time? Is a registered mid-wife allowed to provide a note?

    PDL- you are entitled to an unpaid leave of absence for the duration of the disability up to a maximum of four months. (subject to medical certification)

    For the employee’s own disability due to pregnancy, childbirth or related conditions.

    A “health care provider” is defined as: a doctor of medicine or osteopathy, podiatrist, dentist, chiropractor, clinical psychologist, optometrist, nurse practitioner, nurse-midwife, or a clinical social worker who is authorized to practice by the State and performing within the scope of the practice as defined by State law, or a Christian Science practitioner. A health care provider also is any provider from whom the County or the employee’s group health plan will accept medical certification to substantiate a claim of benefits.
    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
