I'm on maternity leave at the moment and my school has decided to not pay me omp as I've handed in my notice so won't be doing the 13 weeks' service. I hope to get a job in another school within the same LA (if all schools aren't academies by then...) and, if I do, my current school will be forced to pay me my omp as a lump sum.
At the moment though, I only get smp but I also have childcare vouchers. They're not mentioned on my payslip but I know they're being paid into my account.
If I were getting omp as well as smp, would I have to pay the voucher contribution myself? If I get the omp as a lump sum of / when I get another job, will I have to pay for the childcare vouchers?
My school isn't part of the LA's HR scheme so I can't ask without having to ask via the school directly.
Hi Not sure of your exact situation, but I recently took 11 months maternity and the full amount of pay that I was allowed. The school continued to pay my childcare vouchers even after all other pay to me had stopped (after the 9 months). This is an academy, but I'm on Burgendy Book contract. So far as I can tell, there is no requirement to repay them and I certainly haven't been asked for a repayment yet (been back 4 months).
