Pregnant written off sick 50% and being forced to take my leave before the birth

Hi

I am hoping someone can help me. I am 8 months pregnant. I have been written off work 50% meaning I am working half days. I have quite a lot of leave from last year plus my leave (around 5 weeks) from this year that my company wants me to use before I go on Maternity leave.
How does this work, do I only claim 50 % of my holiday as the other 50 % I am unable to work?

I do hope that someone can shed some light on my situation.

Have a nice day

I was recently in a similar situation and recorded my time off as 50% sick and 50% holiday leave. But probably best to check with your company's HR department to make sure this is how they would like you to do it.

Congrats and good luck!

it depends upon you company policy as well. If you are carrying forwad the left over vacations from last year then you have to use them by a certain time. In our case all the left over vacations from 2010, i have to use by April 2011. Also, for 2011 vacations if you are going on maternity leave, they cannot force you to take them instead of maternity leave. You are entitled to 16- 18 weeks of maternity leave in addition to the vacations for 2011. this is swiss law.

Also, for the left over vacation for last year you can negotiate pay out for these days. Talk to HR. Also, very clearly try to understand the policy and cross check with the contract that you got. I know companies always try to do things which favour them and try to avoid paying for these extra things. Be very thorough.
