A colleague of mine has been working for a company for 10 months and she is now pregnant , she wants to leave the Company in 2 months time to take time off to have her baby . Should the Company pay her Maternity Leave ?Well, I'm not sure why you're asking this on the "Retirement Investing" board, but the real question about whether or not the company should pay is "What are the company's maternity leave policies?" If the maternity leave policy indicates that someone who has been employed for 10 months is eligible for a 2 month paid leave, then the company should pay. If the company doesn't have a maternity leave policy, then they are remiss in not having one, and for this employee, they probably need to honor whatever she has been told in the past. Please note - local laws may have requirements for the company to pay maternity leave.The fact that the company doesn't want to employ her after the baby is a whole 'nother issue, and if the Company does not want to employ her after the baby is born, I would suggest to the company that this attitude may be a lawsuit waiting to happen.AJ
