Madhu.T.KThe question of coverage of the Maternity Benefits Act does not apply as your establishment is already under ESI Act. If she has been working with you for at least 80 days over 12 months period, she will have to be given paid leave for 26 weeks of which she can take maximum 8 weeks prior to child birth. The monthly salary should be equal to the same salary that she was getting immediately before her leave. The only components that you can exclude are the components which is directly linked to attendance and reimbursements like travel and telephone.
