Summary

The status of state maternity/parental leave laws throughout the United States is depicted in eight figures and three tables. Information is reported by state for maternity/parental leave laws, months of available leave, maternity/family illness laws, days of leave for family illness, temporary disability insurance laws, temporary disability insurance laws by jurisdiction and by work force coverage, and percentage of states and percentage of work force covered by leave laws. Some of the trends reported are the following: (1) 30 states and Puerto Rico have some form of maternity and/or parental leave laws; (2) five states and Puerto Rico have temporary disability insurance laws that provide partial wage replacements for nonwork-related disabilities including childbirth and pregnancy-related conditions; (3) approximately two-thirds of the states specify a condition of reinstatement upon return to work, which usually means that the employee is entitled to the same or a similar job; (4) of the 31 jurisdictions that have some form of maternity or parental leave laws, 12 apply only to state employees, and leaves vary from 6 weeks to 1 year; and (5) 14 states allow leave to care for a family illness, varying from 5 days to 24 weeks.
