It's important to find out what maternity benefits you're entitled to and what your employer's policy is on maternity leave. This will help you plan out your leave and make sure you are aware of any entitlements or benefits you may be eligible for.
Use a Doc in ClickUp to organize all the relevant info you need to know about your maternity leave.

Use the Calendar View in ClickUp to keep track of important dates, like when you plan to take leave and when you plan to return to work.
3. Draft a Plan
Once you have a timeline in place, it's time to start drafting a plan for your maternity leave. This should include how you will manage your workload while you are away, including who will take over your responsibilities and how you will stay in touch with your team.
Use tasks in ClickUp to create an action plan and assign tasks to team members to ensure that all your responsibilities are covered during your leave.
