Why is it important to have a Maternity Policy and Procedure? 

Having a solid Maternity Policy and Procedure is vital to ensure that you manage all Maternity Leave Notification cases in line with Employment Law and also in a fair, reasonable and consistent manner. Incorrect handling Maternity issues can often lead to legal disputes so having an easy to follow, compliant process is required.

Our Maternity Policy and Procedure details the employees’ rights through their maternity leave and also before, during and after childbirth. Employees are automatically entitled to a total of 52 weeks’ maternity leave regardless of their length of service which consists of 26 weeks’ Ordinary Maternity Leave and a further 26 weeks of Additional Maternity Leave.

Employees with more than 26 weeks’ service (includes 15 weeks before they are due to give birth) are entitled to Statutory Maternity Pay (this is paid for 39 weeks). Employees with less than 26 weeks’ service are not entitled to Statutory Maternity Pay but are still entitled to the full 52 weeks’ maternity leave. If an employee decides to take Ordinary Maternity Leave only then they are entitled to return to their original job, however if an employee decides to exercise their rights to Additional Maternity Leave, although they are entitled to return to their original job, it is reasonable for an employer to provide a more suitable and appropriate job on terms that are no less favourable.

The standard rate of Statutory Maternity Pay is available on the HMRC website.
