I'm worried about keeping my job and health benefits when I go on maternity leave. Is there anything I should know?

The Family and Medical Leave Act

Worried about your job security when you leave the workforce for maternity leave? Make sure you check out the Family and Medical Leave Act. This law gives qualified employees the right to 12 weeks unpaid leave with job protection to care for the birth of a child. The best part, if you're eligible, is that you get to keep your health benefits just the way they were when you were at work.
