Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
As mentioned above I will reply later today thanks
Many thanks for your patience. If an employee does not earn enough for you to pay them SMP and they instead have to claim Maternity Allowance, they still continue being employed by you throughout their maternity leave and as such continue to accrue holidays. These remain your responsibility because the holidays accrue as she is employed by you, not depending on who pays her maternity pay. So whilst she is off, she continues to accrue holidays as normal and these would be your responsibility once she has returned and wants to take them.
