FMLA in Pennsylvania is represented by federal legislation called the Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993. Although, Pennsylvania does supplement the Act with a Pennsylvania Code providing for pregnancy disability to be treated identical to other temporary disabilities, as stated in federal FMLA. The Code stipulates that an employer with as few a four employees, must accept the determination of a pregnant employee’s physician, with regard to any pregnancy disabilities.
