HSE Pregnancy relates sick leave. query

    Hi hoping someone can help here.

    As per hse website

    ''Sick leave during pregnancy

    Pregnancy-related sick leave is treated differently to other types of sick leave. You must be medically certified as unfit for work due to a pregnancy-related illness.

    If you have a certified pregnancy-related illness you can get sick leave in the normal way. You will have the same allowance as normal.

    If you use up all your sick leave on full and half pay before going on maternity leave, you may get a special extension of sick pay at half pay.

    If you are ill after maternity leave, and have used up your sick pay because of pregnancy- related illness, you may be entitled to have your pregnancy-related sick leave restored to you at half pay. This is subject to the normal limits for sick pay.''

    I no someone that is pregnant and working in the hse full time.

    They want to go out early with pay as they are not physically able any more And also worried about catching a disease and passing on to baby, KPC etc.

    Can anyone tell me is it better to use up all the normal sick leave on full and half rate pay instead of using the PRSL pregnancy related sick pay. and keep the PRSL pregnancy related sick pay for after the maternity leave.
