What is maternity leave
Maternity leave refers to the leave treatment of working women before and after childbirth, generally from half a month before childbirth to two and a half months after childbirth. Late marriage and late childbirth can be extended to four months before and after childbirth. Female workers enjoy no less than 90 days of maternity leave. (Article 62 of the labor law of the people's Republic of China) this article does not limit the number of inspection, that is, as long as the inspection is normal and necessary, it should be included in the labor time. It can not be counted as sick leave, personal leave, maternity leave, absenteeism, etc.
