<a >Ohio Civil Rights Commission Says Maternity Leave Must Be Twelve Weeks.</A>
The Ohio Civil Rights Commission recently announced dramatic amendments to the state’s pregnancy discrimination regulations. (Ohio Adm. Code 4112-5-05). Until now, employers only had to allow a “reasonable period of time” for pregnancy leave. “Reasonable period of time” has been interpreted in many different ways and the period of leave granted varied from employer to employer. Under the new amendments, a minimum of twelve weeks of unpaid leave must be provided for “pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions.” In addition, at the end of the leave the employee must be reinstated to ““her original position or to a position of like status and pay, without loss of service credits or other benefits.”
