As a retired federal mediator with the U S Equal Employment Oppotunity Commission, at least 30% of my mediations on a yearly basis dealt with maternity issues. The company would fire a person as soon as she told her boss that she was pregnant. I totally support paid maternity leave, just because someone goes on maternity leave does not mean she will be leaving the job. My experience with this issue has been that even when women are out on maternity leave, they stay in touch with their boss and they might even work from home while out.
