Employee Leave Requests Due To Complications From Pregnancy; What Massachusetts Employers Need To Know

Massachusetts employers must be aware of several potentially relevant laws when an employee requests leave or a reduced schedule as a result of complications from pregnancy.  Employers with at least six employees are covered by the Massachusetts Maternity Leave Act ("MMLA").  The MMLA entitles female employees that have completed an initial probationary period to up to 8 weeks of leave for the purpose of giving birth or adopting a child.  The leave is either paid or unpaid at the discretion of the employer, but it is only available once the child has been born.
