 Hsu & Associates LLC Massachusetts Maternity Leave Act (MMLA) Employment Update   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Employers can limit maternity leave to employees who have at least six months of service by defining their introductory period as the first six months of employment, provided that maternity is not singled out for an introductory period of this length.
Answer: Maternity leave under the MMLA is available “at the time of” the birth or adoption, but not “substantially earlier or substantially later.” Thus, time off due to pregnancy-related complications or illness would not count against an employee’s eight-week maternity leave entitlement.
Leave policies and communications to employees on leave should be reviewed to be sure that the employer is not unwittingly providing greater benefits than it intends.
