Can I Quit During or After Maternity Leave?
Even if you know you want to quit, there are a few legal matters to consider. First, you should know that unless you have an employment contract limiting your ability to quit, you are completely within your rights to quit your job.
Some women worry that they might get into legal trouble if they don’t return to work after promising that they would.
For the vast majority of women, this is more of a practical and ethical question than a legal one.
Unless you are contractually bound to stay in your job for a certain amount of time, you are legally entitled to quit.
