Georgia does not have a state law that specifically requires employers to offer pregnancy leave. However, the Georgia Fair Employment Practices (FEP) Act covers public employers with 15 or more employees and requires that the same leave benefits be provided to women disabled by pregnancy as are provided to other employees with temporary disabilities (GA Stat. Sec. 45-19-20et seq.).This means that public employers can provide leave for employees with temporary disabilities, including pregnancy disability, with or without pay, or not provide it at all, as long as all employees are treated the same in their requests for temporary disability leave.
The state FEP Act does not cover private employers, but they may have obligations under federal law.
