What is a Maternity Leave?

Maternity Leave provides you with time off after you give birth. Eligible State Of Michigan employees may be provided with six weeks off work for a natural delivery and eight weeks off work for a cesarean (C-section) delivery. 

Maternity leave may also allow you time off prior to delivery if you have a pregnancy related medical condition. See "What should I do if I develop a medical condition and must start my leave before my anticipated delivery date?".

Your Maternity Leave will run concurrent with any FMLA entitlement.
