Working Together

Rani was afraid that revealing her pregnancy to her employer would result in her losing her job.She was employed as a helper when she sought assistance from PathFinders.

PathFinders informed Rani about her maternity rights and obligations and facilitated a dialogue between her and her employer.

The family who employed Rani had a myriad of legal and safety concerns regarding her ability and responsibility to work before and after giving birth, as well as the safety and liability of her and her child during pregnancy.

PathFinders was able to outline a maternity leave agreement acceptable to both the employer and Rani, enabling her to focus on the best interests of her child without the worry of unlawful termination.

Outcome: During Rani's maternity leave, she was in regular contact with her employer and returned to work once she had made arrangement for the care of her child.
