What is enhanced maternity leave?

Enhanced maternity leave policies extend the duration of paid or partially paid leave beyond the statutory requirements. For example, instead of offering the standard 12 weeks of unpaid leave, a company might provide additional weeks of paid time off for new mothers during their maternity leave. This extension of paid leave can vary depending on the employer and may range from a few additional weeks to several months.

Enhanced maternity leave policies are intended to support new parents during a crucial time in their lives, allowing them to bond with their newborns, recover from childbirth, and adjust to the demands of parenthood without worrying about the financial strain of unpaid time off.

These policies also promote work-life balance and employee well-being and are seen as a way for companies to attract and retain talented and dedicated employees.
