Private-sector workers in New York are entitled to a Temporary Disability Insurance (TDI) program that provides $170 per week to temporarily disabled workers, including pregnant women. Workers are eligible for 26 weeks maximum, but most pregnant women take about 10 weeks. State workers aren’t covered under the TDI system, but they are entitled to up to seven months of job-protected, unpaid medical leave after a child is born, regardless of tenure or number of hours worked. 

Both public and private-sector employees are entitled to workplace nursing rights for up to three years after a child is born.
