Federal Laws

When creating a disability, medical, or pregnancy leave policy, first make sure your policy is consistent with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA), and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).

State Laws

You also want to make sure that your policies include any relevant state laws about disability, medical leave, and pregnancy leave. For example, California allows up to 4 months of job-protected time off during a pregnancy, more than the 12 weeks of FMLA leave.

Below are a few sample policies, which can be helpful when creating your own policies:
