MCAD: Men Eligible for Maternity Leave 

In what has been described as a "bombshell," MCAD Commissioner Martin B. Ebel recently stated that MCAD will in the future apply the Massachusetts Maternity Act in a gender-neutral fashion. This means that men, as well as women, may be eligible for maternity leave, despite the fact that the Act specifically applies to women. For more, see this article in the Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly and the discussion in Massachusetts Law Updates.
