I wanted to post a follow up to my earlier post – Ohio Fifth District Court of Appeals Decision Requires That Employers Provide a Reasonable Period of Time for Unpaid Maternity Leave Regardless of Length of Service or Leave Policy.

On July 29, 2009, the Ohio Supreme Court, with Justices Pfeifer and O’Donnell, dissenting, agreed to accept the defendant employer’s appeal for review. We will keep you posted as this case proceeds to oral argument and decision.  For more details about this case, please read our earlier post.
