I just had a question for anyone in the know! I had kept 2 weeks holiday aside preceeding my due date, however I am under the impression that ifI have a doctors certficate to stop work which is looking more than likely, I would not have needed to keep these holiday leave days.
Can someone tell me what my rights are? In the UK if you are signed off sick in the 4 weeks up to your due date - you are automatically forced to start your maternity leave. However do I understand correctly that here in Switzerland, you start your maternity leave once the baby is born and if you are signed off by a doctor before that, that is official sick leave, not enforceable maternity leave?
If this is the case - am I right in thinking that if I am signed off by a doctor, these 2 weeks holiday I kept aside should be able to added onto my maternity leave instead?
Thanks for your help
