Pregnancy Disability Leave (PDL)

Pregnancy Disability Leave is an unpaid leave of up to four months per pregnancy for a female employee who is disabled as a result of pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition.

  • This leave is available to employees as medically needed regardless of their length of service or time base.
  • PDL can be taken consecutively or intermittently.
  • As an example, PDL may include, but is not limited to, additional or more frequent breaks, time for prenatal or postnatal medical appointments, or any related condition.
  • CSU policy requires employees to apply the appropriate accrued sick leave credits to PDL to maintain pay status during the disabled period.
  • In addition, employees may be eligible for Non-Industrial Disability Insurance (NDI), administered by the Employment Development Department (EDD).
