A pregnant woman is entitled to various maternity benefits such as paid leave of 6 weeks, woman cannot be engaged in tedious work involving labour, woman cannot be terminated during the period. If your employer refuses to give you maternity benefits, you can file a case against the employer to claim compensation for maternity benefits. MyAdvo will help you draft and file the petition through an expert employment lawyer.

Before filing the case, sending a legal notice to the employer acts as a final warning. In case the dispute is still not resolved, you should then file the case to claim maternity benefits from your employer. To send a legal notice, please click here.
