Re: maternity allowance
Hi, Good day to you.
i just come across http://pesaraonline.net/part9.htm
and stated the following : ----
39. Payment of allowance to nominee on death of female employee.
If a female employee, after giving notice to her employer that she expects to be confined, commences her maternity leave and dies from any cause during the eligible period, her employer or any employer who would have been, but for the death of the female employee, liable to pay any maternity allowance shall pay to the person nominated by her under section 41 or, if there is no such person, to her legal personal representative, an allowance at the rate calculated or prescribed as provided in section 37(2) from the day she commenced her maternity leave to the day immediately preceding her death.
my question are :
1) Does this include for those female employee salary above RM1500.00 or below?
2) how to prove that the employer been informed of the maternity leave applied by the female employee? (coz the employer can argue they do not know any date of the confinement )
