NJ Mom Sues Verizon For Denying Paid Maternity Leave for Twin Boys Born to Gestational Surrogate

A New Jersey mom sued Verizon after denying her paid maternity leave for twin boys born to a gestational surrogate.

The article reflects the struggle companies often face when medical innovation outpaces law; particularly in this case, laws protecting disability.   To add to the complexity, the NJ mom argues that Verizon provides paid maternity leave and some financial assistance for its employees to expand their family through adoption and that the selection of a gestational surrogate should receive the same favorable treatment.
