Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.

HI there. Sorry. I sent you that response by accident. Could you also tell me how many hours she works over the 3 days and then leave it with me. I am in court today so will prepare my advice during the day and get back to you at the earliest opportunity. There is no need to wait here as you will receive an email when I have responded. Thank you.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
24 hours over three days

Thank you. I will deal with each entitlement separately:

Maternity pay – to be entitled, an employee must have been employed for at least 26 weeks by the end of the Qualifying Week, which is the 15th week before the expected week of childbirth (EWC). So you need to get her due date, work back 15 weeks and in that week she must have been employed by you for at least 26 weeks. In addition her normal weekly earnings must be at least £112.

Maternity leave – this will apply if she is an employee and gives you the correct notice, regardless of how long she has been there or what she earns. The required notice must be given to you at least 15 weeks before the due date – as long as she advises you of tis within the prescribed time limits she is due maternity leave.
