is maternity act applicable to construction industry

HRDExe 

Maternity act is applicable to the certain staff engaged by our establishmenton on contrcatual basis. My question is

whether this benfit is payable to the employee if she does not join after availing the maternity leave for which she is entitled for. And if she resigned from the estblishment after the expiry of the said leave, what will be the date of relieving? the day she last attended the establishment or the date on which the maternity leave ended. Please clarify.

Goswami, Admn Officer

Please help me understand this works with companies that use Recruiting agencies to fulfill contingent labor needs? Are they responsible for paying the contractor maternity leave payout? Or would that be the responsibility of the agency that the work is actually employed by?
