Good afternoon, thank you for contacting Just Answer my name is***** am a solicitor and I will be assisting you today. There is a possibility that this could just be a typo, it may be that they meant to say that she will be put on maternity leave for the 19th June.
The first step step I would advise would be to raise a formal grievance, in relation to the maternity leave being back dated the following link should assist you: https://www.acas.org.uk/grievance-procedure-step-by-step/step-2-raising-a-formal-grievance
No, the start date for the maternity leave should have been agreed by both parties.
Glad to be off assistance, I wish you all the best.
