Resigning after mat leave

(6 Posts)

is there any kind of extra notice period I need to work given that I've just had 9 months mat pay? (7 of it statutory). Have been back three weeks and contractually we give four weeks notice.

no you just need to give your contractual notice period as standard.

True, but worth checking if you have to work for any particular period in order to retain any contractual leave that you had - some companies will require that you repay unless you return to work for a certain period.

My place asks that you return for a month at least or pay back the difference between their maternity pay and statutory maternity pay. Most people who don't come back use their accrued annual leave as notice.

Thank you. Now how do I make my boss cry with my letter? wink

I work for the NHS, I returned after 9 months M/L - if I didnt return I had to pay back some of my pay sad
