Pregnancy Disability Leave

The California Fair Employment and Housing Act provides up to four months (88 work days) leave during the time a woman is actually disabled and unable to perform her job due to pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions.

Upon the documented advice of her health care provider, a pregnant employee may request temporary reassignment to a less strenuous or hazardous position. If the employer can reasonably accommodate such a request, it must be granted.
