and her unborn child. All pregnant employees, regardless of length of service, are entitled to
request time off work to keep appointments for ante-natal care prescribed by a medical
practitioner. Evidence of appointments may be requested.

when disruption to the business is minimised, for example at the beginning or the end of the day.

b) Health & Safety: Maersk requires all business units to have in place Health & Safety policies that
ensure the health and safety of the expectant mother and unborn child.

c) Performance and Career: Prior to the employee going on maternity leave it is important to have a
performance discussion with the employee so that feedback can be input into the appraisal cycle.

Classification: Confidential

For the purposes of planning for both the line manager and the employee it is also advisable to
have a career discussion prior to the employee going on maternity leave. This will help provide for
an easier transition back into work and also ensure that the employee is made aware of any
opportunities that may arise during their absence.
During Maternity Leave
Every employee may have different preferences for keeping in touch with work during their maternity
leave. It is important that the employee and the line manager agree on how and when to communicate
during the maternity leave prior to its commencement.
Managers should inform the employee:
• Of any structural changes in the team e.g. a change of line manager or restructuring
• Opportunities in the team e.g. informing the employee of a potential career opportunity available
• End of year appraisals
As a general principle, employees going on maternity leave should continue to be communicated with on
all important matters relevant to their role as per mutual availability.
Returning from Maternity leave
Returning from maternity leave can be a demanding time for an employee. It is important that the
employee, HR and the line manager work together to ensure a smooth transition back to work.
As a general principle the employee should return to the same role that they had before their maternity
leave started. If this is not reasonably practical, then the employee should return to a similar job that is
suitable and appropriate for them in accordance with their skills and expertise. The role, its scope and the
impact on the individual should be discussed between HR, the employee and the line manager.
Miscarriage or Medical Termination of Pregnancy
In case of miscarriage or medical termination of pregnancy, a woman shall, on production of such proof
as may be prescribed, be entitled to leave with wages at the rate of maternity benefit, for a period of six
weeks immediately following the day of her miscarriage or, as the case may be, her medical termination
of pregnancy
The employee’s role will be protected while on maternity leave and within a specified timeframe the
employee is entitled to return to exactly the same role.

2.29 Training and Development

The organisation aims to enable employees to perform their duties to the highest standards by providing
training that improves professional knowledge and skills.
The organisation offers a variety of learning opportunities to fulfil the various learning needs which arise
throughout a career in the organisation. In general, the learning opportunities offered to employees in
the entire A.P. Moller - Maersk Group are based on the learning philosophy as identified by Group HR.
This philosophy is inspired by scientific research suggesting that practical working experience - supported
by systematic reflection – is the most efficient learning method and the most efficient driver of
behavioural change. These research findings coincide with the experience of thousands of employees in
A.P. Moller - Maersk and therefore, the so-called "70/20/10 principle” has been made a central element
of the learning philosophy.
The “70/20/10 principle” is not an expression of actual working hours; it is an expression of how the time
that the individual is learning in the job should be divided: The principle prescribes that over time in
general approximately 70% of an employee’s development must come from on-the-job experience, 20%
from interaction, coaching and sparring with their managers and colleagues and 10% of the learning from
courses and training programmes.

2.30 Learning Management System (LMS)

LMS is the platform for structured learning in the Group. It must be used for all training matters. All new
