Maternity and Parental Leave Policy Proposal
On March 28, 2016, the Department of Administration proposed changes to the Maternity and Parental Leave Policy, in the Montana Operations Manual, to reflect the following changes:
-Added language explaining how maternity and parental leave, sick leave, and FMLA policies intersect
-Added language clarifying leave taken prior to childbirth, because of a medical condition related to pregnancy, will not count against the maternity leave period
-Reordered some sections of policy and generally updated for grammar and clarity
