Am i eligible for maternity leave during probation


Hi, I am working for a Pvt Ltd from 3rd Oct 2017 till date. I just realised that I am 4 weeks pregnant. My probation period is for 9 months from the date of joining i.e 3rd July. I might have to go on maternity leave from August 2017. Am I eligible for the maternity leave or does the maternity leave benefit apply only if i complete probation. I am worried because they might ask me to leave or create a situation for me to leave if I tell them now.

If the establishment is covered IT has to provide the benefits to pregnant woman employee per applicable provisions.  

You may go thru; THE MATERNITY BENEFIT ACT, 1961; 2(b),5

Employer cannot terminate pregnant woman employee during Maternity Benefit period except in case of misconduct.................

 

Remain careful and keep proper record to handle allegations of misconduct....if any.
