Maternity Leave Length

What is the 'normal' or average an employer usually gives for maternity leave? I thought it was 6 weeks but I have heard of others getting 12 weeks or even 6 months!

Re: Maternity Leave Length

In the US 6 weeks is pretty standard, but some larger companies offer 12 weeks. Your doctor usually doesn't release you to work until 6 weeks though.

I've never heard of 6 months here some of Europe offers that, but I don't think it's employer paid - I think it's paid for by the government.
