Five states (CA, HI, NJ, NY, RI) and Puerto Rico currently have Temporary Disability Insurance (TDI) programs that provide partial wage replacement for employees unable to work due to injury or illness, including pregnancy.
Women who give birth are typically given six weeks of paid leave under these state laws, but complications for pregnancy or birth can extend that period.
Because wage replacement is linked to ‘disabled’ status, fathers and adoptive parents are not guaranteed any paid leave.
