Is there an employee handbook? That's where ours is.

Check if your employer has a separate maternity policy, it's not set out in my contract what i'm entitled to it's in the policy (which is on our intranet so i could read it without asking hr).

You must be on the minimum. Can only ask for more. Obv you can't force them.

Just that really, if it doesn't state anything at all in my contract, doesn't even mention it, what am I entitled to, just the minimum?
I have worked there 4 years and they are quite reasonable, if it is just the ,minimum, which I think is 6 weeks on 90% then on to smp isn't it, does anyone have any advice on trying to get more, I'm never going to manage otherwise.
I do plan on going back to work but not sure I could bear it after just 6 weeks.
