When to use this model maternity policy
Use this model policy to guide managers and employees in relation to employees' entitlement to maternity leave and pay.
Note: The usual rules for calculating normal weekly pay for the purpose of determining entitlement to, and the rate of, statutory maternity pay are adjusted for employees who are furloughed under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.
