- Employers are liable to pay them benefits at the rate of the average daily wage, for the period of their actual absence from work, that is, the time period immediately preceding and immediately following the day of her delivery.
However, no woman can avail maternity benefit unless she has actually worked in an establishment of the employer from whom she claims maternity benefit, for a minimum period of eighty days in the twelve months immediately preceding the date of her expected delivery.
A woman shall be entitled to maternity leave for a maximum of 26 weeks, of which a maximum of eight weeks may precede the expected date of delivery.
Any woman who legally adopts a child below the age of three months will be eligible for maternity benefit for a period of twelve weeks from the date the child is handed over to the adopting mother or the commissioning mother, whichever the case may be.
Women who return to work after delivery, shall, in addition to the standard interval for rest allowed to her, be permitted to take two breaks during work to nurse their child, until the child is a year and three months old.
