Question: Who is responsible for paying the worker's salary and benefits, if any, during the pregnancy leave time?

Answer: Issues concerning pregnancy leave time are covered under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). FMLA leave is generally unpaid leave. However, an employee may elect, or an employer may require an employee, to substitute the employee's accrued paid leave (if available) for some or all of the FMLA leave period.
