If you have at least ten employees, taking all the teaching and non teaching staff together, your school will come under the purview of Maternity Benefit Act. As such women employees having worked for 80 days in the 12 months preceding the expected date of delivery should be given 26 weeks leave with pay and medical bonus of Rs 3500.
Just because a school is covered under ESI Act, how can you say that maternity Benefit Act is not applicable. It should be like,Maternity Benefit Act is applicable to schools and in respect of employees including teachers who are under the ESI (only those who get salary of Rs 21000 or less will be under ESI) the liability of paying 26 weeks salary and medical bonus, as applicable, will be taken care by the ESI Corporation.
Only myself had commented on the issue other than you. If you read what I had written, I had meant to say that the Maternity Benefit Act is applicable in the first instance and then only comes whose liability is it to provide maternity facility. Please read and then react.
