Great info here, but is there anything for pregnant employees on fixed term contracts? I am currently getting exasperated with my HR who informs me I have very few rights as I'm not permenant. My contract is due to end Jan 4th 2011 while I'm on Mat leave.

Paternity leave for c section


If my partner has a c section, what paternity leave will I be entitled to?

Whether your partner has a c-section or natural labour makes no difference to your paternity leave entitlement. It would still be 2 weeks at £128.73 per week provided you were employed at your work before your partner fell pregnant and you have given them the relevant notice.

you can't choose MA or SMP; if you are entitles to SMP, that's what you get!

But i only work 8 hrs and you get 90% of that so ill get like noting surely?
it says in my parents guide the midwife gave me, smp - expectant mums who work 39 weeks pay ,while on maternity leave, then maternity allowance - expectant moms who work but not eligible for smp (because your income is very low ) so maybe i will get this? will need to speak to my boss i guess.

Hi,

I work In HR and your sister may not be entitled to their enhanced maternity pay package but she will qualify for the statuory one, which most people get anyway.This is 6 wks at 90% then the rest of the 9 months at £135 per week.

Hope this helps

Yes whether your partner has a c section is irrelevant to pay. Just make sure you inform your manager and HR of the dates

When working while pregnant, you’ve a guarantee that you are sheltered. Under the federal and state law, your pregnancy can be lawfully measured as a "temporary disability". With this, your company will not vacillate to accommodate you and make required adjustments.

Take It Easy
While pregnancy means provisional disability you can still work, but you have to take care of yourself and your baby. You need to set restrictions and not to overexert yourself. If your work involves standing for long time, you must schedule breaks where you can put up your feet and relax, or if your work entails a plenty of sitting behind a desk whole day, you can get up and move around from time to time.

Taking Care of Yourself
If you’re not a usual water drinker, you’ve to change that. It is essential to stay hydrated and don’t mind taking quite a few trips to the bathroom because this is to evade urinary tract infection. Taking care of yourself includes having a healthy diet. You require good, well-balanced food to keep you and your little one going through all over the day.
