I work with an MNC in delhi as a fixed term hire employee. My one year contract ended on 21/11/2014 which was a friday and i was given a new contract starting 24/11/14 Monday. Now because of the weekend in between the two contracts i am being denied maternity benefits. My expected date of delivery is 29/01/15 and i have been informed that i am not eligible for Maternity Benefits as i would not have completed the required 80 working days by then. But i had already been working for a year before this under the old contract, which is apparently not valid only because of the weekend. Is there any way out of this?
I was informed of all this AFTER i signed the new contract

The initial contract and the second contract has to be gone through to take a view in the matter. Secondly what is the law which is applicable to the MNC referred to by you.Is it the factories act or themotor transport workers act or the plantatrion labour act or the shops and establishments act. If it is the shops and establishments act what is the State or Union Territory in which this MNC is located. These information are also necessary

Dear Malathikhawas,
According to me if the Fix Term Contract leads to depriving of certain benefits to employee then it is unfair and one has to go to the judiciary to declare such practices to be illegal.
