Conduct a pre-maternity-leave interview

Key points

  • It is good practice for the employer to conduct at least one pre-maternity-leave interview with the employee.
  • At the interview the employer should discuss arrangements for staying in touch with the employee during her maternity leave, including keeping-in-touch days. The interview could also include discussion of other practicalities such as the employee's annual leave entitlement and arrangements for when she will take this.
