Dear Member,
Plz let us know which of the section or rule of the M B Act, 1961 says to serve two months advance notice to employer for getting maternity benefit ?


From India, Delhi
Even if the provisions of the Maternity Benefit Act, 1961 says 2 month prior notice to the employer before seeking Maternity benefit, she should not be denied the maternity benefit if she does not serve the notice. The provisions of the Maternity Benefit Act, 1961 reads, the woman may serve the 2 months notice. The logic behind this is, employer should not escape from the liability by claiming she has not served the notice. There is strict liability on the part of employer to pay the maternity benefit in case if she works 80 days preceding expected date of delivery.
