Pregnancy Disability Leave


Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL) occurs when an employee takes a disability leave due to pregnancy, childbirth or a related medical condition. Pregnancy Disability Leave gives an employee the right to return to the same or similar position.


Eligibility is based on information from the medical treatment provider certifying that an employee is unable to continue working due to pregnancy, childbirth or related medical condition. An employee may be covered by PDL for up to 4 months. Typically, PDL is combined with FMLA and runs concurrently.

After the FMLA and PDL benefits have been exhausted, the employee may be eligible for parental leave of 12 additional weeks under the California Family Rights Act (CFRA). Therefore, an employee may be entitled to a maximum of seven (7) months of pregnancy/parental leave (4 months-PDL/FMLA and 3 months-CFRA).
