Resignation on the grounds of Pregnancy would tantamount to sheer contradiction of the Fundamental Rights laid down under Constitution. However, it would still be pertinent to refer to the contractual terms of employment which may have been laid down either in the appointment letter or in any agreement signed between your Wife and the Employer upon appointment. One can even challenge the contractual terms. However, the first step to be taken is sending of a legal notice against such action taken by the Employer.

How can I file complain against my company. As my company is neither giving me 6 months paid maternity leave nor continuing my job after delivery.

I am on maternity leave since 16th March 2020. I have delivered to a baby girl on 24th March 2020. My company has not paid me any salary till now (only paid for 15 days March for which I have worked for the company) and company is also denying to join back after completion of maternity leaves.
