Employee's Early Return to Work Notice Letter during Maternity Leave

Employee's Early Return to Work Notice


Eight weeks’ notice must be given by an employee if they intend to return to work early. This letter constitutes such notice and specifies the date on which the employee wishes to return.

The employee’s right to return to their original job depends upon the amount of leave taken. If the employee takes only 26 weeks’ Ordinary Maternity Leave (“OML”), she is entitled to her original job, pay, benefits and seniority. If the employee takes Additional Maternity Leave (“AML”) following OML, she is entitled to her original job or, where this is not practical, a job with conditions, pay, benefits and seniority at least as good as her old job.

Optional phrases and / or paragraphs are enclosed in square brackets.

This Maternity – Early Return Notice is in open format. Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
