Early return to work from maternity leave worked example 4


Natalie has worked for her employer for two years and earns £250 per week.

Natalie started her maternity leave on Monday 16 March 2015 and her baby was born on its due date of 6 April 2015.

Natalie gave notice to the employer that she wished to return to work before the end of her full maternity leave entitlement; at the end of her ordinary maternity leave period. However, she now wishes to return to work at the end of her statutory maternity pay (SMP) period.
