Good Afternoon to Everyone.
I am working as a Senior Officer - HR in a reputed organization in Coimbatore. We are providing both ESI & Mediclaim Benefits for our employees based on category.
I request your valuable suggestions on the below.
A women employee covered under ESI is applicable for 26 weeks of Maternity Leave. What about an women employee if she is not eligible for ESI (i.e. Drawing Gross Salary of 21000/- and above).
Should company provide Maternity Leave with Salary as per ESI act.
Should company provide Leave alone without Salary.
The company is not liable to provide Leave or Salary.
Pl provide detailed explanations.
Thanks in Advance.

The employee has to be paid leave with salary as per the Maternity benefit act and not ESI act. Please go through the latest maternity benefit act in detail. Its available on the net.

If the women employee does not come under the purview of ESI Act, then the company has to give 26 weeks leave with Salary and/or any other benefits as per the Amended Maternity Benefit Act.,

Please note that, it is not covered under ESI is "applicable" (Entitled)
Women Employees not covered under ESI Act, come under the purview of The Maternity Benefit Act, 1961 wherein benefits are to be Paid by the Employer.
I understand that "Mediclaim" is for Non ESI Covered Employees. Does mediclaim Benefits are on Par with the benefits Payable under The Maternity benefit Act, 1961? Please check & revert
