We have hired female employee for six month in contractual period. After 2 month she is asking for maternity benefit. She is eligible or not? Please guide

Advice you to visit Labour Commissioner office for clarification.

Dear Anil, A couple of questions:
1. As its been only 2 months since she joined, did she declare her pregnancy at the time of joining.
2. how many week pregnant is she? Has she put any application seeking Maternity Benefits?
fyi, any employee who has served not less than 80 days in an organization is eligible to get maternity benefits as mentioned in the act.

From India, Delhi
I assume eligibility criteria is 180 days and not 80 days. Pl correct me if wrong. R R Kapoor Vadodara

Dear RR Kapoor,
Section 5.2 of the MB act states the following:
"No woman shall be entitled to maternity benefit unless she has actually worked in an establishment of the employer from whom she claims maternity benefit, for a period of not less than eighty days in the twelve months immediately preceding the date of her expected delivery"
