Letter Asking Employee on Maternity Leave if she Intends to Return to Work

EMP.MAT.23

This Letter asking employee on maternity leave if she intends to return to work can be used by employers to make informal enquiries of employees on maternity leave as to whether or not she intends to return to work from maternity leave and on what date.

Although an employer is entitled to make reasonable contact with employees on maternity leave, enquiries must be made in such a way that they cannot be construed as harassment. The letter makes it clear that it is an informal enquiry to which the employee does not have to respond. If the employee wants to return to work on her due date for return, she can just report for work on the relevant date.

As the letter points out, if she does not want to return to work at all, the employee should just resign giving the notice of termination set down in the contract of employment.
