How to calculate the date of maternity leave
Maternity leave should consist of 140 calendar days, namely 70 days before the expected date of delivery and 70 after it. If you are the future mother of twins, then you are entitled to 84 days before delivery and 110 after this "high point". It should also be noted that in the case of complicated births, for example, cesarean section, 16 days are added to maternity leave.
The date of birth is calculated on the basis of the sick leave sheet, namely the expected date of delivery, which your doctor should determine in the women's consultation. Leave after childbirth is also calculated from this date, regardless of the actual time of delivery.
Also, the woman is entitled to the main paid vacation every year. This vacation the future mother has the right to take before the decree or aftervacations for child care.
Maternity leave is payable. And according to the innovations, the woman herself has the right to determine the method of calculating the maternity. The federal law establishes two options. The first option is to pay maternityvacations as well as a simple hospital. That is, the accountant should calculate the average salary for two years, then divide by 730 (calendar days) and multiply by 140 (the number of daysvacations ).
The second option is to determine the average earnings over the past 12 months. Then divide the number by 27 (the number of calendar days per year) and multiply by 140 (maternity leave).
