    Dear Aspirant,

    There is no problem in asking for the maternity leave to the manager.It is your right given by govt.of India under the Maternity Benefit Act 1961.As per the provision of act,you are entitle for maternity leave for a period of first 6 months & then if needed for another 6 months,if you have worked for minimum 80 days.You need to apply for this leave with a medical certificate.You are entitle to get full pay during your maternity leave.

    So in order to ask about this leave,you may ask to your manager about the provision of maternity leave as to nos. of days to be sanctioned & allowances applicable during this leave,explaining your position.Your manager may reply you in positive & if he applies in negative,submit your leave application with the medical certificate & enter on leave.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Hello Friend,

    Congratulation! You should write an application of your Maternity Leave and submit it to your boss. This is the best way to ask for maternity leave in a corporate world. You can either write the application by yourself or take the help of internet. There are many samples maternity leave application available in the internet, all you have to do is to pick the right one and download it. Now, make some adjustments and take a print out of the copy, sign it and submit it to your manager.Hopefully, he will grant you much deserving maternity leave.

    Well it is as simple as you can ask for the sick leave because there is no rocket science in asking for the maternity leave , i can understand that you feel something different when you ask your boss regarding the maternity leave so you need to make yourself comfortable before you write an application for the maternity leave.
    As maternity leave is compulsory for any of the female employee at the time when she is pregnant then your boss can never ignore the application so you need to ask for the same in a nice manner.
    After applying for the same the company will react in a rapid manner because it is a sensitive issue, but there are some laws behind that after how many months you can take the leave before that you cannot apply for the leave so you need to make it comfortable.
