How should we handle maternity leave for an employee who’s not FMLA-eligible?

02/16/2016

Q: “We have a pregnant employee who does not qualify for FMLA (has been employed with the company less than 12 months). How long do we need to hold her position while on maternity leave? Must we continue paying health insurance premiums while on maternity leave, or can we offer COBRA coverage after a specified amount of time on leave?” – Anonymous, Texas
