I have not told my boss that I am pregnant yet, I'm waiting till around the end of my first trimester. I work for a small family owned natural foods store and I read through our employee handbook and there was no mention of maternity leave, just that vacations would be handled on a case by case basis. (I am the only employee out of 10 who has a child! It can be very frusterating, they are all very opinionated about how to raise children yet none of them have their own child to raise...but that is another post for another time )
Does any one know if employers have to allow maternity leave?
