I'm a full time employee and the company have announced that my department is likely to be re-structured soon. I've read that if I am made redundant before the last 15 weeks of my pregancy (ie before June 12th) I won't qualify for SMP! I'm confused as to whether being made redundant INCLUDES my notice period which is 90 days... or is it from the day I 'leave'....? HELP!!!
Yup, it depends whether you are asked to work/put on garden leave or paid in lieu.
Do bear in mind that, even if you don't qualify for SMP, you might get maternity allowance. You don't get the good 6 weeks at the start, but you do get the same length of time at the flat rate. And because it's a benefit it always used to be the case you didn't pay income tax on it (if applicable to you, and disclaimer, it was a while ago I last looked at the tax status).
