I am the HR manager of a hospital which employs about 300 employees. It has become an increasing trand among the organization that nurses after availing maternity week of 12 weeks at full pay are resigning from services. In such a case, what protection does an organization have? Can it take any action? Or can the organization have such an arrangement that the employees will get paid for the maternity leave on resuming duty?

This seems to be an Administrative problem rather than a statutory problem.On statutory side you have to pay the matenity benefit as per law.
On an administrative side,you can have the option of a fixed term employment/contract, say for 1year etc for any body who joins the organization for the initial 3 years or so-and after that employment on permanent rolls-say from the 4th year.
It is obvious that those who stay 3-4 years will definitely come back and join after the maternity leave,and those new comers who are not sure of sticking on will leave without availing the maternity benefit.
