The Largest State’s Governor Just Vetoed Paid Pregnancy Leave for Teachers and School Employees

By Sahid Fawaz

Should teachers have paid time off for pregnancy and other reproductive health issues? California’s governor says no.

The Los Angeles Times reports:

“Required paid pregnancy leave is off the table for California teachers and school employees.

On Sunday, Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed AB 568, which would have required schools to give teachers six weeks of paid time off for pregnancy, childbirth, miscarriages or other reproductive health issues.

Brown cited two bills he previously signed that allow employees to receive pay for maternity and paternity leave.

‘I believe further decisions regarding leave policies for school employees are best resolved through the collective bargaining process at the school level,’ Brown wrote in his veto note.”
