In King v Hundred of Hoo Nursery, the EAT overturns an employment tribunal's decision that an employee lost the right to return to work from extended maternity leave because her intention to return was mentioned informally when her father took written notification of the baby's premature birth to her employer, but was not expressed in writing at that stage.

In King v Hundred of Hoo Nursery the EAT has held that a woman's notification of her intention to return to work after maternity absence does not have to be in writing.
