Are you referring to paid or unpaid leave Op? Paid is totally valid while on visa. I’m a bit fuzzy on those partially paid or unpaid mat leaves, but EY law did tell us that it was legal too on H1. Can you confirm with your visa team?

Lol true that! I know that a lot of the desi consulting firms don’t pay mothers when they are out on maternity leave. I’m not sure that’s legal though. Wouldn’t hurt hiring an outside lawyer just to be sure, I hear the rates are like 200$ an hour or something.
