Does it kick off maternity leave?

I am on long term sick with a non maternity related illness. Will work be able to kick in my maternity leave early because of this or can I stay on sick until due date and then move onto maternity.

Thanks

Nope. Sickness has to be caused or exacerbated by pregnancy. If its entirely unrelated they can't start mat leave.

They have been very good to me mind you so I wouldn't make a fuss.
