    my mr.man isn't self employed, but from what we have read about pat pay in maternity books/sites etc. that there is apparently nothing available.

    can he not part time it for 1st 2weeks,thatway thereis still some wage?

    I wondered about this.

    Just from the point of view that the person IS employed, and the government would be paying SMP/SPP if the boss was a third party.

    Seems a little unfair.

    Do self employed women get SMP?

    It is very unfair, why should i not get paternity money, just because I choose not to work for someone, seems like discrimination to me!!!

    So much for a sharing caring Labour Party, all mouth and no substance!! Typical socialists!!!

    Both myself and oh are self employed and luckily I am entitled to maternity allowance but oh is not entitled to the paternity payment !

    Its mad really as I *think* if you are employed the goverment reimburses the employer for paternity pay anyway so why they can't pay if your self employed is beyond me.
