Cover yourself with a maternity agreement ahead of time!
Sara has worked as a full-time architect for three years. She has decided that she wants to take unpaid leave after her maternity leave and then continue working at 60%.
This is what you can do in such a case:
1. Organise the return to your workplace with your supervisor as early as during your pregnancy.
2. Agree in writing when you will return to your job and what level of workload you would then like to take on (maternity agreement).
3. The maternity agreement serves as an addendum to the existing employment contract. If you reduce your workload, you should demand a new employment contract after your return.
