Dear Sir,

Need your advise.

I've signed offer letter with new employer, I will start 2nd Feb 2014 (probation period of 6 months). I've also tendered my resignation with my current employer.

Today, I just found out i am pregnant nearly 3 months now. My maternity leave shall start end of May 2015. 

Will I be entitled to maternity allowance during my probation period?

Appreciate your help.

Probationary period alone may not affect the entitlement to maternity benefits, if you are qualified.

Then you are not covered by the EA. Hope that your employer has such a benefit for his female employees.
