Now if the person can really afford to give maternity leave and benefits let him give, else he better knows than us on how to tackle the situation. After all the show must go on. And please give this notice to the women:
SHE SHOULD HAVE CHILDREN BASED ON HER AND HER FAMILYS PERSONAL REQUIREMENT AND NOT BASED ON WHETHER SHE WILL GET MATERNITY LEAVE OR NOT. WHEN GOVT OF INDIA PLANNING DEPT FIXED LIMIT OF 2 CHILDREN WE SHOULD SEE THAT INDIRECTLY IT IS IMPLEMENTED IT IS OUR DUTY AS CITIZEN OF INDIA TO CURB POPULATION. BUT SOME WOMEN HAVE THIS MENTALITY OF JUST PRODUCING BABIES FOR MATERNITY LEAVE. DONT KNOW WHEN INDIA WILL STRICTLY FOLLOW RULES OF 1 / 2 CHILD PER FAMILY.
then might be we HR may reduce pressure on women to quit , during pregnancy, so that business is not affected.

If a woman employee choose to leave after availing maternity leave, no action can be taken against her legally. There are establishments who refuse to give leave or even terminate the service before she asks for maternity leave. That practice is also seen only in India. If law is there, it is expected to be followed and if not required, forget it as if the law is not applicable to us. It is just like driving violating the signal light when no Police man is watching and obeying the traffic rules when Police is alert.
