Hi friends. The MBA 1961 provides Maternity Benefit for 26 weeks. Isn't it possible that the company may take notice of her bloated stomach 3-4 months after her getting pregnant and dismiss her on the suspicion that she might avail MB in near future?
If the employer wants to harass, he can resort to any such heinous crimes, but there is a law and a well laid down system that protects employees against such arbitrary and deceptive actions. Dismissing an employee is not easy. Please do not assume things or try to exploit a weakness in the law. It is not clear as to whether a member is an employee and I believe that he must be an employer finding support from the law for such actions.
