As per reports, it has been found that the company has more than 15 workers to provide maternity benefits to its employees. The same thing has been mentioned in the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978, but the same act does not provide provision for those, who have been working at such places where employees are less.
It has been seen that there are many companies, which do not provide maternity cover even if the employee number is equivalent to the number that is being mentioned under the act. Dania Palanker, who is a senior official at the National Women's Law Center, said that it is not a novel thing that a lot many companies have not providing dependent maternity benefits to their employees.
Dan Priga, who is heading Mercer, which is a human resources consulting company, was of the view that the number is quite high of those companies, which prefer not to provide dependent maternity benefits. If to put the statement in percentage form then there are as many as 70% companies, which do not give dependent maternity benefits, irrespective of the fact that the clause of monetary benefit is being mentioned in the act. People, who have not been able to get the help, were of the view that many times they feel vulnerable.
