Hi,

1) I give birth on 1Nov2019. due to some family issue. I decided to resign yesterday 5Nov2019. My notice period to the company is 2 month.

Did I still entitle for the maternity leave? Can employer refuse to pay my wages?

2) Can my immediete superior as me to work (reply email, answer call) during my maternity? Immediete superior email and warning me for not reply email or call during my maternity. Is this agaist the law?

What should I do if I'm facing this.

Thanks in advance for your guide.

If you give resignation notice to coincide with your maternity leave, the company may not want to pay you the two months maternity allowance and they may use it for indemnity in lieu of the two months notice. You better make sure about that with your company.
