maternity benefits act


Maternity benefits act has been notified on March 27, 2017 and is supposed to be applicable from April 1, 2017. My employer is denying me 26 weeks paid leaves from June 1, 2017 onwards on the grounds that they haven't received a written circular from the government. Is that a valid ground?

Simply apply in the prescribed form under the Maternity Benefit Act. Send the application/ form under registered post or obtain an acknowledgment from the company. Let the company refuse you leave in writing. Therafter, next course of action can be decided.
