If you work for an agency can you get maternity leave?
Specifically I will be working for the NHS as part of a 'bank' team which is ad-hoc work to cover sickness, you work as much or as little as you want but you have to commit to a shift a month I believe.
Its not NHS professionals, its a bank for a local trust, so I would only work within that trust. So sort of an internal staffing agency.
You can accrue holiday (an hour for every 12 hour worked) so I wondered about maternity pay.
Also if you are pregnant/have had a baby and cannot commit to a shift a month can they take you off the bank?
