    Can I ask for maternity leave when I am working from home?

    Ever since I got married I have been working from home for my company. I am on their regular payroll and entitled to leaves and other perks but I was wondering if I am entitled for maternity leave in india when I am working from home.

    Hi aspirant

    I surely think that you are entitled for maternity leave being a permanent employee of the company. It doesnt matter whether you are working at their office or from home. If you cant take the work stress anymore due to your pregnancy, you should avail your maternity leave for the good health of you and your baby.According to the Maternity Benefits Act, you are entitled to 6 months of leave, 3 months before the expected date of delivery and 3 months after that. So if you are 6 months pregnant at present, then you can avail your maternity leave right now.

    For more clarity on this matter, you go and talk to your manager and ask him that you want to avail your maternity leave now and whether you are eligible for the same. I am sure he will guide you in the right direction and thus help you out. Its better that you talk personally with your manager rather than speaking on phone as the former will have more impact. Now friend whatever the outcome is, you take proper care of yourselves and your baby at this stage. Eat good and healthy in the required amount and take proper rest . Follow all the instructions of your doctor diligently and dont take any stress at this stage.

    Hoping for a safe and healthy delivery. All the best and Thanks
