By law, the employer is obliged to extend the validity period until the end of pregnancy. The employee must write a statement and attach a medical certificate. She, at the request of the employer, is obliged again to present a new reference, but not more often than 1 time in 3 months. To dismiss it only after the end of pregnancy.
