I am currently on maternity leave and have decided not to return

Customer Question

I am currently on maternity leave and have decided not to return after ordinary maternity leave. I would like to give my employers more notice than required (1month) but I don't want to risk losing my pay for the remaining months. Can they end my contract at the end of the notice period before my ordinary maternity leave ends?

Hello, my name is Ben and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. How long have you worked there for? Are you entitled to just SMP or company maternity pay too?

Ben Jones :

Hi, not sure if you saw my initial query above? Waiting to hear from you, thanks
