Why is it important to have a Maternity Leave Letter?
As an employer, you are obliged by law, to provide Maternity Leave to your employees in line with legislation. If you don’t manage the process correctly you could be leaving yourself and your business exposed.
You’ve run through your process and agreed details regarding the Maternity Leave, but what do you do if things have changed, e.g. the starting date for Maternity Leave has changed. This is where our Maternity letter (Change in Circumstances) will come in.
You need to formalise that there has been a change from the original Maternity Leave details and our Maternity Leave Letter (Change in Circumstances) is an easy to use template that will provide you with everything you need to ensure you are following a compliant process.
Managing a Maternity Leave process can be pretty complex so you need to make sure that you get it right. If you don’t you could be on the other end of an employment dispute such as an Employment Tribunal.
So, do you actually know what to do if one of your employees tells you she is pregnant? Do you know what is legally required of you as the employer?
HR Heroes Maternity Package will guide you through the full process and provide you with all the letters and guidance you need to meet your employment obligations and ensure you’re compliant with Employment Law.
