im taking my 10 keeping in touch days over the next 5 weeks to give me some extra xmas spending money. bit crafty i know especially as i only live 5 mins away from work and pop in there all the time so hardly need to "keep in touch" but its available to me and will break me in gently for my proper return in feb.
My work worked out the difference between my normal rate of pay and SMP, then made up the difference.
So for example -
say i earn £10 an hour. SMP works out at £2 (PURELY FOR EXAMPLE!) So, for each kit day, they paid me £8 an hour worked. so at the end of the month, i got a nice little lump sum of about £50 - £90 extra!! (i worked all 10 days, very beneficial however my mat leave was very short)
