I currently work on the Bank for an NHS trust. It's a zero hour contract but I noticed on my contract they it says "worker" not employee. Can someone please give me any advice as to where I stand with maternity leave? Will I be allowed to take any without losing my job?
Am I entitled to any kind of maternity pay?
Am getting really worried about having no money and losing my job
Hey Rosey94, don’t know if you’re still needing advice on this issue but I have worked as bank within the NHS and asked them about staying on the bank during and after maternity leave. I was told that is fine as long as you ring them to say you are going on maternity leave, they will make a note of it and keep you ‘on the books’. Also check out if you are entitled to Maternity Allowance which is paid by the government based on your earnings within a certain period before due date. www.gov.uk/pay-leave-for-parents
