You get 4 years from the birth of your youngest. She has two kids, youngest will be four this year so she'll be back next. You don't get paid for any of it, but you are guaranteed your position for four years from the birth of your last child. You don't get paid for ANY maternity, the time you take comes out of your sick bank if you want to continue collecting your check, and you get six weeks from the birth of the child, after that, you don't get paid, and if you don't have the days banked, you don't get paid. Fathers can take paternity for the four years that mothers get to stay and care for the child, but do not get the 6 week period of paid medical leave (thats for the ladies who pop out the babies).
