How do an employee apply for Maternity Leave?

An employee must give their employer at least 4 weeks’ written notice of their intention to take maternity leave and must also provide their employer with a medical certificate confirming your pregnancy.

If an employee intend to take the additional 16 weeks’ maternity leave they must provide their employer with at least 4 weeks’ written notice. Both these notices can be given at the same time.
