Hello All, In 2012 we are facing a big problem related to maternity leave. Many female employees are availing the maternity leave and then informing us before their joining date that they can not join the company again.
Recently one case has happened like one employee went on maternity leave from 12 July,2012 and she told us that she could not join the company on 12th October only.As such we ask her to pay 1 months notice period, she paid that also but she is asking about her 12 days salary.
Please help me regarding the issue.

There is no practical solution to this problem but just to allow them maternity leave and maternity bonus as per Maternity Benefit Act and also to allow them to leave as they wish!! If you take a step by refusing to grant leave then it could become an industrial dispute and the consequences will be very high.
In your case your demanding notice pay is unfair. therefore, settle the issue by paying the salary remaining unpaid. ( In fact, I didn't get the 12 days matter)

Dear Ms. Shilpapc,
Maternity is a benefit provided to the female employees. It's just not some leave that they could get as usual to work. They have to be shown with some concern and as Mr. Madhu T.K. said it would show corollary for a dispute. Make sure the employer dont up-shot the basic.

Maternity benefits is the right of the female worker and it is the duty of the employer to give the maternity leave to her. But leaving the employer after the leave is a problem faced by most of the employer. But no body can do about the same and there is no way to stop such tendency. Even the government cannot pass a law about the same because it is very sensitives issue and no government has such courage to do the same and they should not do it also.
