    Can a female candidate ask for maternity leaves just after joining?

    If a female candidate asks for her maternity leaves just after her joining, will a new candidate will be hired by asking her for a resign or she will be allowed to join again when she comes back. Is there any rule of providing another job when she comes back?

    Re: Can a female candidate ask for maternity leaves just after joining?

    Hi friend

    According to the Maternity Benefits Act , a female candidate cannot take a maternity leave just after joining the company as she needs to spend atleast 180 days as an employee of that company before she can avail her maternity leave. The company can certainly ask her to resign if they want to and can even hire someone else in her place. And anyways once that female condidate goes for the maternity leave or leaves her job, then the company has to find her replacement at any cost .

    But friend you should not worry about such things now as this is the most crucial and valuable period of your life . You should not think about such things at the moment and make sure that you don't stress yourselves over such matters. You have to take proper care of yourself as well as your baby at this time and make sure that you eat healthy and according to the proper requirements as advised by your gynaecologist. Also make sure that you take the adequate rest that you require. This will make sure that you and your baby stay healthy.

    You can certainly go and speak to your manager regarding this.Tell him that you know that you are new to the company but as you are pregnant you certainly have to take your maternity leave right now. You know that you are not eligible for the same but as you would love to work in this company you request him to please let you avail your leave right now. In the meanwhile they can employ a temporary candidate in your place. After you come back you will definitely make sure that you complete your pending work as well as be upto date with your work. You will surely work with full dedication and give your 100% to the company. You really hope that they will accept your request. Also ask them for any provision for re-joining after the maternity leave as in my opinion there is no such rule regarding this.

    I really hope that your manager will accept your request and thus you can rejoin the company after coming back. But even if he doesn't you are sure to get another good job after this. Just believe in yourself and I am sure you have a bright future ahead.

    Have a safe and healthy delivery. Good luck and Thanks

    Hey!
    The question that you are discussing here varies from one company to the other. There are certain rules that are framed by each organization regarding the maternity leaves of the female employees. If the rules mentioned in the guidelines that are followed by your organization allow a maternity leave after a few months of joining then you can allow the same. Some organizations also have stringent rules wherein the services of the employee are terminated.

    Incase you feel that the work will suffer then you will have to employ some other candidate in place of the employee seeking a leave. Maternity leaves can be given for a period of maybe 3-4 months. If the present state of work affairs of the company allows that the female employee can take a leave then you should allow her to take one. Maternity leave is an unavoidable situation and a natural process and hence a leave in such a situation is inevitable.

    It can also be gauged from the work of the employee in the first few months as to what is the level of sincerity of the employee. I am sure that a general impression has been formed by you. On the basis of that you can estimate whether the employee is there to stay in the organization for along time or is the volatile kinds. Depending on your judgement you can decide whether you should keep a permanent employee in place of her.

    You are not liable to give the employee another job after she comes back from the maternity leave if you had terminated her services before hand. On the other hand if you feel that there is a vacancy that can be filled by the female employee then you can offer her a job. This can also change from one company to another. Different managers can have different points of view. All the best!

    Dear Aspirant,

    It depends upon the policy & requirement of the company.It is true that the working women are entitle to get the maternity leave but under the provisions of rules of maternity benifit Act 1961.As per the provision of act,if a female employee works for 85 days in a current year,she is entitle to get the maternity leave.Otherwise not.In your case,It seems the concerned employee is not entitle to get the maternity leave.

    If it is necessary to appoint a new employee instead of her,one can be appointed mentioning the same conditions in the appointment letter so that there may not be any administrative problem later.The employee who asks for the maternity leave,she can be sanctioned it without pay & she can be allowed to work after her rejoining the job.In this case your official works may not be affected & one will have chance to earn something along with getting experience of job.

    Thanks.

    Ashok..
