in our company a female employee asked 1 month leave on medical ground in march 2018 and without approval went on leave. in April again she asked for 8-9 month leave as she mention that she in the process of mother hood. she did not share any medical document that she is expecting a baby or not nothing was mention,
from HR side 2-3 reply send on her mail by Jun 2018 that a private sector company cant allow that much leave and hr asked her to give resignation. but she did not do and gave excuse that she has been working from last 10 years and she deserve that much leave. till the time again she never shared any maternity or medical certificate or document,nor even HR send any letter or notice.
Now in Dec 2018 she shared a document that she bless with baby and kindly give her maternity benefits.
Now as per company she is not working and she is not eligble for benefit.
Kindly suggest how and on which ground company can denied to pay or avoid this situtaton because money matter a lot as per new rule of maternity
