  • NY State pregnancy/maternity laws New York

    I am a high school teacher working out of a Long Island public school for the past 4 months. I am pregnant and due in a month. I know that I am not eligible for the FMLA protection, however, I am wondering about any other laws that protect me.

    I was told by my employer that I will not be covered for a six week leave but rather only for the days I have in my sick bank (13). In addition, I will not have health insurance past those 13 days. They suggested that the only alternative I have if I can't return after my 13 days is to apply for a leave of absence which will not allow me to return to work until next September- with out pay or insurance. Furthermore, I was told that I don't qualify for disability either.

    Does this seem right?

    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.
