Sick mothers gain protection

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In the joined cases Kwik Save Stores Ltd v Greaves and Crees v Royal London Mutual Insurance (27 February 1998) EOR79A, the Court of Appeal has ruled that a woman "returns to work" from extended maternity leave when she gives the employer the requisite 21 days' written notice of the day of return. It is not necessary for the woman to physically attend for work on the notified day, so she does not lose her right to return if she is unable to report for work through illness.
