Maternity Leave Rules for Women Government Employees

Women employees are eligible for maternity leaves of 180 days for maximum two surviving children. Maternity leaves can be combined with any other kind of leaves including CCL and can be taken without medical certificate up to one year in continuation. These leaves cannot be debited against leave account and the period of leave will be included in service period for increment and pension. The women employee will be given full pay during the leave period. But one should be careful not to join office back during maternity leave period as this leave can be taken in one spell at a stretch. If woman employee joins back before completing her maternity leave, it automatically gets cancelled.

Women employees are entitled for 45 days of leaves in entire service for in case of miscarriage/ abortion whether induced or otherwise but not for threatened abortion. Application needs to be supported by a certificate given by recognized or registered practitioner. This leave is admissible irrespective of number of surviving children.

Payment during leave

Hi Sir, ma'm,

I am working for a private firm in software industry. I started with them in March 2010 and have completed almost 2 years with the firm.
I am pregnant now and will be going on leave from January 2nd or 3rd week, but recently HR told me that you will not get salary for the period during which you remain absent i.e 3 or 4 months, whatsoever. But only after I join the firm post delivery and work for more than 6 months I will get the salary for that duration for which I was absent.

I think this is against the law and if a single woman is working and is not paid for the duration of her leave while she is on leave then this is unacceptable.

Please reply.

Maternity Leave for BMC Employees

Hi,

My wife joined in Brahanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) run K.E.M.hospital at Parel from 2nd Aug'2011. She conceived in 2nd week of August'11. The EDD by USG is 13th May'2011. Before issuing the appointment letter her medical examination was done by BMC in July'11, this included Gynecology examination also and that time she was not pregnant.

She has completed 80 days of working as of 28th Dec'2011 after joining her duties from 2nd Aug'2011 without taking any break or any leave what so ever in between as per the BMC rules.

Can she awail maternity leave benefits of 180 days from Feb'2011?. When she inquired about the ML at KEM hospital admin dept, she was told that she can not get ML benefits as one needs to complete 1 year of service for availing the ML benefit of 90 days and 3years of service for availing the ML benefit of 180 days. Is this correct?

Also she is working as Lab Technician at the KEM hospital blood bank and the duties involve shift duties, earlier she was told that from 4th month of pregnancy the pregnant ladies staff is not given night/shift duties. However she has been asked to do the night duties even in the 5th and 6th month? is this correct and legal? can some legal action be taken about the same?

I don't think so this will be allowed because Maternity Act 1961 stipulates minimum of 80 working days before availing maternity benefits.
