    Full maternity leave not being sanctioned for surrogate pregnancy

    I am expecting my first child through surrogacy procedure. I have not been open about this issue in the office as it is extremely personal. They know that process is still under wraps. My boss has stated that I wonít be able to claim entire maternity leave in single go. I tried to clarify the doubt with the HR manager but of no respite. Please guide me in finding a solution.

    Re: Full maternity leave not being sanctioned for surrogate pregnancy

    Hi friend

    Your boss is certainly doing injustice to you and you have the right to avail your full maternity leave even if you are expecting your first child through surrogacy procedure. Of course in this procedure it is not you who is pregant but some other woman, so definitely your boss may not give you full leave for the same. But this is his viewpoint and I don't think there is any law stating the same. If we follow the Maternity act then you too have full right of availing your full maternity leave like other mothers.

    But here the major problem is that you are not pregnat and thus this may void the Maternity act benefits for you. So on second thoughts I think that your boss maybe right in this case and you may not be able to take your full leave. But you should definitely consult your lawyer for this and also take his advice. I am sure he will guide you in the right direction. I hope you have understood my point and why your boss and manger re behaving in such a way.

    I am sure you will get what is rightfully yours. Good luck and Many congratulation for your first child. Thanks
