In California, employers with five or more employees are required by law to provide Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL) to employees. TDIC recommends that all employers provide this leave regardless of the number of employees in their practice. PDL covers employees for up to four months of leave, taken either before or after birth, for disability due to pregnancy, childbirth or related medical condition (sickness, bed rest, etc.) as determined by their health care provider. Please reference state-specific guidelines for pregnancy.
