mine are useless as well. the lady who was dealing with mine and agreed to my requests went on planned sick leave (she had an operation which she knew about) and is now off until the 17th may, i'm due to finish 14th may and apparantly no one else in HR knows anything about me, they've lost my MAT B1 certificate and are now questioning what she agreed to!!

I'm soooo angry. so i'm refusing to do any work until it's sorted. my boss is very supportive though and has said he'll argue it, as they can't change their mind this close to my leaving date. if i hadn't have chased it up i don't expect they'd even have known anything! Useless bunch!

and if they do end up changing their minds, go off on the sick untill you can leave for maternity..my doctor is great, if i need time off i just go and have a natter with him and he'll write me a sick note

By law, you need to inform your employer in writing regarding your intention to take Mat Leave, however they do not need to confirm back to you unless they are unable to pay you for any reason, in which case they would need to send you an SMP1 form to enable you to claim Maternity Allowance instead. Most employers however, do send some kind of confirmation of your Maternity Pay Period which helps your peace of mind and will also tell you how much you will be receiving in your 6 weeks higher rate period too. If people haven't requested this from their employers then i would do so. A tip for people when informing their employer is to keep copies of everything sent in and back everything up with an email (as people can not deny they have received it).

ssssttttttrrrreeeeeesssssssseeeeeeeeeeeddddddddddd!!!!


despite sending my request and matb1 in february, i finally have an answer today, and they've changed their mind with regards to how to take my annual/maternity leave. they will not allow me to carry over my annual leave into next financial year (which is what they had agreed) so i was supposed to be finishing on 14th may and only having a week off before baby was born so as to have longer off afterwards. well i am now finishing next monday, which has totally screwed up all my plans!!!!!!!

Unfortuntately, probably not a lot you can do about this. But remember, you will be accruing annual leave whilst you're on Mat Leave, which you can then tag on to the end of your Mat Leave.
