Hi Chitra, The Act does not make "notice" mandatory for availing maternity leave. However notice, if given should be within six (06) weeks from the date of her expected delivery and not before that.

Hi 1.Under the provisions of the Maternity Benefits Act, Employees are entitled to maternity benefits at an average daily wage for a period of six weeks from a day before your delivery to six weeks following that day. 2.she can take EL from the end of ML leave or can insist to come to duty and then to take el which purely on basis on part of employer Keep sharing and learning partha
