    Is it advisable to take 36 weeks of maternity leave? Will the company allow for that?

    I need to apply for Maternity leave in my company but I am quite confused if they allow to take leave for long time? Is it advisable to take 36 weeks as maternity leave? Will the company allow for that? Can you please tell me how to request for the maternity leave?

    Hi,

    I would like to let you know that it is totally depend on your company. Any software company or private company provides 3 months i.e 12 weeks maternity leaves officially. Some companies also provides 1 more month as a special maternity leaves in case of medical needs. For these 4 months you will get the salary. But if you required more leaves as per doctor then you have to show your doctor's prescription and you will take LWP(Leave Without Pay) for that period.

    But if you need 9 months leave, then its totally depends on company that will company provide you the LWP and you will remain be employee or will they ask you to resign because might they do not want to be an employee on company's payroll. Its a very long period and in starting itself if you will ask for the same then of course they will deny. But if medically you need more leaves then might be they will allow you.

    Company allow Maternity leave surely to working woman in the organization or company, but according to their HR department permission and the Maternity leave policy.
    You also get maternity leave according to your company's Leave Policy.In the company's leave policy , All the detail is specified for Maternity leave. you will also get according to it.

    some company allow the 12 week Maternity leave and some company 6 month (Max . 24 week ) Maternity leave.
    but here as you told , Never company allow 36 week such a long period maternity leave.you want 36 week maternity leave (9 month).It's too much long.you will not get such maternity leave.
    now finally, you have to see the your company's leave policy and according to it , you should have to apply for maternity leave.

    Hi friend

    I think you cannot ask for such a long leave if we go according to the rules of the Maternity Benefits Act. According to this act you can avail 6 months of maternity leave at the maximum, 3 months before the expected date of delivery and 3 months after the delivery date. So the total amounts to about 26 -27 weeks in this case. So I think this is the maximum you can avail but getting a leave in excess of this depends how strict your company is in dealing with such rules.

    You can request for the leave by writing a formal letter to your manager or if possible , you can directly talk to him. If your problem is very genuine for taking such a long leave, then your manager may consider your request and may even allow you to do so. Thus you should ask your manager as soon as you can and I am sure hwe will try to help you out in this matter.

    Good luck friend. I hopoe you get what you want
