Re: Maternity Leave
The below point states that employee is not entitled to receive maternity allowance if she already has five or more children.
• (c) Notwithstanding paragraph (a), a female employee shall not be entitled to any maternity allowance if at the time of her confinement she has five or more surviving children.
• (d) For the purposes of this Part, "children" means all natural children, irrespective of age.
May I know if this applies for entitlement of maternity leave as well or the employee is entitled to get maternity leave irrespective of the number of children?
