It is advised to opt for Maternity leave 8 weeks prior from the due date as per the Act but if employee doesn’t opt for this leave than you need to take seld declaration from the employee stating" In this period I will take complete responsibility of my pregnancy or if anything happens to me and company will not be responsible."

THis declaration is mandatory.
