Hi there,

I have been informed i will be get retrenched on 31 Oct 2018 (letter will only be issued 2 weeks before I leave the Company).

However i found out that i am 5 weeks pregnant now, and i will be pregnant for 4.8 month by the time i leave on 31 Oct 2018.

Will i still get maternity compensation for the retrechment?

Thanks and regards,

The pregnancy will have to be 22 weeks to qualify for maternity allowance. However, since you are going to be retrenched, there could be a package of compensation from the company for retrenchment. Let them know you are pregnant and ask them to  take the pregnancy into consideration when making the severance package.
