They can go on early leave now

KUALA LUMPUR: Mothers-to-be can now opt for a maximum of 14 days of maternity leave prior to their due date. However, this would be deducted from the 60 days' leave that they are entitled to. The new ruling will come into effect on May 1, according to a Public Service Department circular issued on April 20. Heads of departments are expected to record this early leave which must be supported with a letter from a doctor on the expected delivery date. -- Bernama
