Maternity Leave Approval Letter

With every passing year, more and more women are joining the workforce. Most rules and regulations are the same for both genders, there are yet some matters in which special privileges are granted with respect to gender needs and requirements. One such is maternity leave. Maternity leave is a temporary leave which is granted to expected mothers for the term before and after the birth of their child.

Most businesses follow a specific maternity leave term, others may differ in their policies regarding permitting maternity leaves. A good health of an employee is what is required for good performance. Since after childbirth, it takes a time to rebuild health, the purpose of maternity leave is to give the employee the time to set herself well for work and to allow a mother-child bond to build. Since it is not only for the benefit of the employee but also for the ultimate benefit of the business itself, it is recommended to grant maternity leaves to mothers well in the time when they ask for it. This letter can be used to send an approval of maternity leave to an employee.



Dear (Recipient’s Name),

I am writing this letter to you regarding your application that I have received by you asking for a maternity leave. Since you mentioned that your health does not allow you to work anymore and you are prescribed bed rest by your doctor too, I guess this is the time for you to have rest. Because you’ll not be able to perform well and working will bring health risks to you I am hereby approving your maternity leave from [enter month] to [enter month]. Hope to see you at the office in [enter month]. You are requested to complete your pending tasks and projects (if any) before leaving or submit a detailed report about them so that they can be completed by someone else.

Happy motherhood!

[Your Name]

[Senders Title] -Optional-
