Manage an employee who does not wish to return to work after maternity leave

Key points

  • If an employee decides that she does not wish to return to work, she must give the employer the necessary notice of her resignation. This will be either the statutory minimum notice or the employee's contractual notice, if this is greater.
  • The employer may have to pay the employee her normal full pay during the notice period, depending on the length of her contractual notice period.
