Manage terms and conditions during maternity leave

Key points

  • All contractual benefits, except remuneration, continue during ordinary and additional maternity leave. This means that salary and other payments such as a shift allowance may be stopped, but all other contractual benefits must remain in place.
  • The employee is also bound by obligations arising from the terms and conditions of her contract, for example any restrictive covenants will continue to apply.
