This is something that FMLA tries to correct. Basically it's federal law that states that if you are unable to work for a period of time (for any reason, as long as you're under a doctor's care), your job is protected for up to 3 months (IIRC). We usually have about one or two women a year using FMLA for pregnancies, but we also have people out for various surgeries and other medical issues.

As a side note, guys can also use FMLA to get up to two weeks off from work with no illness or medical problems if their wife has a baby, for bonding with the newborn.

Any other questions?
