I need some advise on the following matter. My sister is employed with a co-operative bank as a Trainee Officer and is on probation. During her joining she was in the early stages of pregnancy ( less than 2 months) and did not inform her employers as it was too early. Now she has applied for a transfer to a branch close to her house because of advanced stage of pregnancy. Her HR department now says that if she had declared her pregnancy at joining she would have been asked to join after the delivery.
I want to know if the bank can ask her to resign or would they consider giving her a leave with loss of pay if required. Incase she is asked to resign is there any law which can prevent this from happening. Please help me with this.

I believe your sister is supposed to inform the management. Normally they won't ask for resignation, a minimum of 6 months gap required for the eligibility, they may allow her to go on Loss of pay leave but not bringing the information to the management's notice is wrong.

I Dont Understand Why Do People Do Like This< If Your Sister Is Pregnant Then Why She Joined The Job. :-?:-?:-?
She Should Not Have Joined Any Job, Because Even She Knows That In Future This Pregnancy Will Cause Problems Both To Her And Her Employer.
Why Do People Do Like This.
Ask Your Sister To Resign Immediately Because It Is Her Mistake>

And I dont think any intelligent member would appreciate what your sister has done. So I think full and final decision is ask your sister to resign or take LOP if Bank agrees or ask her to resign and rejoin if Bank agrees to take her after delivery.
But mistake is mistake.

Hi Samita,
May be it was too early for your sister to confirm. I understand that.
As mentioned by Mr. Kamesrao Loss of pay is a possibility. Your sister could also mention to the HR it was a bit early to confirm.

Embarrassment to HR Department... Harassment to Employer..... minimum 160 days to work to eligible for Maternity benefits. Within probation period no benefits are not advisable. Rashid

There is nothing like suppresion of pregnancy.If they aske a question and she said "NO " then it is supression. Under the Maternity Beneft Act if the qualifying period is there then she is entiled.

Well she was not asked at that time whether she was pregnant. Anyway the bank has been very understanding and have given her leave. she can join after the delivery.
Thank you all for your valuable inputs. Much appreciated.
