Good Afternoon Madam,

The Maternity Benefit Act provides that a woman will be paid maternity benefit at the rate of her average daily wage in the three months preceding her maternity leave. However, the woman needs to have worked for the employer for at least 80 days in the 12 months preceding the date of her expected delivery. The prenatal leave is of 8 weeks and maternity leave of 26 weeks.

If you wish to discuss more, please get in touch.

Warm regards,
