    RESIGNING AFTER MATERNITY LEAVE

    Good day, I am wanting to know the implications to myself (employee) of resigning from my job after coming back from Maternity Leave. I have just come back to work after being off for 4 months. While on leave my company did pay me 30% of my salary - nothing was said that I would need to work a specific time period after maternity for this. I had a prem baby and have just completely changed how I feel - I want to take care of my children myself. It is not because I hate my job. My feelings have just changed. Can my employer penalize me in any way for doing this? Thank you

    I have been on the other side of your situation.Unless there is an agreement in place for the 30%.There is very little the company can do.I got burned a few years ago and I now do not offer any part payments while on maternity pay.I rather give a bigger bonus once the lady has been back at work for a while.

    Being a dad,I can fully understand your situation.

    Good luck.

    I don't understand it, therefore would be hesitant to pay for maternity leave because of exactly what happens like in this case.
