A Federal Court Judge in Detroit- in a landmark decision-has ruled that female employees who are compelled to take maternity leaves are entitled to full.unempjoyment compensation. U.S. District Judge Charles Joiner ruled that a Michigan State law, which denies unemployment benefits to women forced off their jobs by mandatory maternity ■ leave policies, is unconstitutional. The Judge ordered the state pay out full benefits to all women who are forced to leave their jobs temporarily because of pregnancies.
