    Does maternity leave applicable for teachers who are working in school too?

    I am a teacher in one of the Government schools usually Maternity leave and those are given for the software professionals is what I heard but is it also applicable for teachers who are working in School? Can you please tell me how many weeks will be given for Maternity leave if I am working in school? Will I be paid for that from school or not?

    Friend, Maternity is a right of every mother. It is a right given to every mother irrespective of the post and job profile at which the expecting mother is working. If you are a government teacher then also you can avail the benefits of maternity leave.

    You can get leaves of 26 weeks, but you have to check the rules once again as it differs from state to state.

    You will be paid a salary which you are getting right now so do not worry at all on this.

    Thanks

    Hi aspirant

    According to the Maternity Benefits Act , 1961 ; i think Maternity leave is provided for every working women be it in a private or government job. So you are certainly eligible to avail the benefits of the Maternity leave provided you have completed atleast 180 days in your workplace. The rules may vary a little from place to place but overall are same everywhere.

    As per the Act, you can avail six months of continuous leave , 3 months before your delivery and 3 months after that. But ofcourse you should consult your school authorities for the same to get more clarity on this. It may vary a little. So you dont have to worry about anything. You will surely get your pay for the days you are taking maternity leave. You may also get some additional benefits like medical allowance depending on your school policies. So just take of your health and take proper rest.

    Good luck. Have a safe delivery
