Has anyone had a bonus after returning to work after maternity leave? I'm positive that with my first two children I got paid an extra fortnights wages after I'd been back for 12 and then 18 months. Back from maternity leave number three and no-one at work has heard of this.. i haven't made it up surely?

Could it have been holiday pay you were entitled to? When i was on maternity i got a large sum that i wasnt expecting toward end of the 9mnths paid maternity,turned out it was hoilday pay and leui hours owed for that period..

No definitely not holiday pay- I'm sure it was in my old maternity pack I was given from work- two weeks extra pay at 12 and 18m back. Probably would've been helpful to say I work for Boots.

I had one, it was a company policy to try and retain staff rather than a statutory entitlement.

Are you at the same company?

Yes still with same company- now thinking is maybe a bonus they have no done away with

Do you have access to your payslips from when you would have received it previously?

Have you spoken to your HR department?

I'll phone hr tomorrow. My epayslips don't go back that far.

We did - we got a £1000 return to work bonus.

Hopefully it’s still company policy, or they can at least confirm it was a policy to put your mind at rest.

What does the relevant policy say?

I had this with my first 2 kids. They’ve changed it now so with my third I got more mat pay and no bonus.

Need to check current policy- I'd just assumed it hadn't changed- I certainly didn't get more maternity pay
