Can I use my Maternity Leave to offset my notice period?

While there are no restrictions on clearing your Maternity Leave during notice period, you cannot use such leave to offset your notice period; meaning using such leave to shorten your notice period.

I am not married. Do I have Maternity Leave? My Child will be a Singaporean.

If you are not married, or whose marriage is not recognised by Singapore, you will be entitled to 12 weeks of Maternity Leave (8 weeks paid) if you are covered under the Employment Act, and of course, had worked for your employer at least 3 continuous months.

If you have more than 1 living children at the time of delivery, you will not be entitled to the 8 weeks of paid Maternity Leave.
