I am due in August 2013 and have been working for my FL employer(less than 20 employees) for the past 4 months who knows that I am pregnant. From what I read in EDD site, CA provides 4 weeks pre-delivery and 6 weeks post partum maternity leave(pregnancy disability) as well as Paid Family leave for 6 weeks after disability leave.
I do have a feeling that my employer will push me to return soon after delivery and I do want to take the combined 12 weeks with the state's 55% pay.
What are my maternity leave rights when my employer is not in CA? Can I get fired for taking the maternity leave?
