good day po attorney. I just want to know what type of case if there is any can we file for an employer who failed to grant the initial payment for maternity benefit. My wife is currently employed with this employer (call center company)since last year November 2011 and she is on maternity leave from October 2 of this year until December 1 of this year 2012. She gave birth the 13th of October. I got pieces of information from labor law website about Maternity benefit that i also need to clarify. it is stated here that: "The full payment of maternity benefits shall be advanced by the employer within 30 days from the filing of the maternity leave application"..."The SSS shoulders the payment of maternity benefits. But the procedure is that the payment is to be initially advanced by the employer, subject to immediate reimbursement by SSS". she filed the maternity leave application 30 days before the maternity leave took effect. Your response to this message will be highly appreciated. Thank you.

It is the SSS ultimately that grants maternity leave benefits but should be paid first by the employer subject by the former's reimbursement.

Go to the DOLE and file a complaint against your wife's employer for not extending the benefit to her.
