Why this letter is necessary

A maternity leave return to work notification letter is a letter from an employee to their employer to inform them of their intention to return to work following a period of maternity leave. The letter usually includes the date they plan to return to work.

In the letter, the employee may also outline any specific requests or arrangements they would like to make in order to facilitate a smooth transition back into their role. For example, they may request to return to work on a part-time basis for the first few weeks or ask for any necessary accommodations related to breastfeeding or childcare.

Overall, the purpose of the letter is to ensure that the employer is aware of the employee's return to work date and any relevant details, and to express the employee's commitment to resuming their role with the company.
