Pregnancy Disability Leave

Understanding Pregnancy Disability Leave


Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL) is provided to eligible employees in accordance with the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and allows you to take up to four (4) months of leave. If you take part or all of this leave, you may request up to twelve (12) weeks additional family leave due to the birth of your child or your own serious medical condition. Upon completion of PDL, you are entitled to return to the same or similar position with equivalent benefits, pay and conditions of employment.

See the Pregnancy Disability Leave Information Sheet [pdf] for more information.
