Re: maternity leave count

Usually weekends are not included in your vacation days. Same for public holidays. :-)

I think the process involves three steps:

Step 1: Pick up the phone, dial HR phone number
Step 2: Ask question as follows "Hi, I have a question related to the maternity leave as spelt out in the internal regulations"
Step 3: Listen to the answer.

Or you could go for random answers off the internet that may or may not coincide with what your firm is doing.

Re: maternity leave count

We blokes don't necessarily know this but it is standard to not announce the pregnancy during the first trimester:

When to inform manager that I am pregnant

A quick search hasn't resulted in much more information about counting, simply because it's the same system like counting vacation days. (The time off reduces proportionally if you work less than 100%.)

Re: maternity leave count

Shorrick I can think of many reasons that someone shouldn't or wouldn't want to do this.

Re: maternity leave count

You have to separate between:

- Mutterschaftsentschädigung according to the law, which is paid out for 14 Calenderweeks (98 days) at 80%

and

- additional priviledges given by the employer.

So in the OP case we see that the days are more than the 98 days granted by law but we don't have any way of knowing if the additional days given are working days or calender days. Only the HR department of the OP can help out here.
