I had joined a company in nov 2018. At that time i was unaware of my pregnancy. My due is in July. Post feb 2019 i got to know my company is not having any maternity policy and now in April 2019 i am asked to resign as they cannot afford to either pay me for maternity or allow me leave without pay. Please suggest.
