She is a new mom to a premature baby in the Greater Boston area of Massachusetts. She is being denied maternity benefits after being told by her employer that she needed to return to work in order to save her maternity pay for when her child came home from the NICU. She did just that and now that her baby has come home, her company is now denying her coverage.
Anyone know a good family law attorney or another kind of attorney that would be appropriate in and around Boston? And to cut any questions about eligibility off, she definitely qualifies for leave under the Massachusetts Maternity Leave Act even if she may not qualify under FMLA. Please proceed with recommendations that her legally entitled time off benefits under Massachusetts law are being violated EVEN IF she is not eligible for leave under the federal statute.
