California will require more employers to continue health care coverage for women on pregnancy disability leave under a new law.

Right now, both state and federal law regarding family leave requires employers with 50 or more workers to provide 12 weeks worth of medical coverage when an employee goes on pregnancy leave. The amount of coverage must match what the employer provided before the worker’s leave.
