Maternity Leave Letter

Dear Michael,

Re. Maternity Leave

I am writing to confirm that I am pregnant and the baby is due in 21st August 2009 and I wish to avail my maternity leave from the week starting from 6th August 2009. I have not taken any annual leave and my annual leaves are still available to me totally and I wish to add the same to my maternity leave. I have enclosed the requisite form as per the rules for your perusal and action.

I also wish to avail my full maternity allowance for the period. I shall avail full maternity leave till 5th July 2010 and want you to confirm if you accept the date of rejoining. If I wish to return to work sooner, I am aware that I have to notify you of the same. Similarly, if I am late in rejoining work due to any reason, I shall notify my reasons.

I sincerely hope to hear from you at the earliest regarding confirmation of my maternity leave and rejoining date.

Thanking you.

Yours sincerely,

Sarah Jones

  1. Hi

    I am currently on maternity leave and unable to return to work as there is no availability at child care centres .
    I would like to write a letter to work advising I am not in the position to return until a position becomes available in a child care centre
    I have paid a deposit and put my child’s name on a waiting list at 3 child care centres , which I researched exclusively
