The Ohio Civil Rights Commission has proposed a new statewide policy to guarantee 12 weeks’to mothers working for companies with as few as four employees, with no minimum length of service. The law would replace Ohio’s existing law, which requires companies to give a “reasonable period of time off,” a standard which has been confusing.
If it passes, Ohio will be the 18th state to expand maternity andbenefits beyond the standards, which apply only to employers with 50 or more employees and workers who have served at least 1,250 hours and have worked for their employer for at least one year.
