How exactly do keeping in touch days work?

I've read a lot about 'keeping in touch days' and I am hoping to do some to help me transition back to work after my son is born. I don't understand however, why you can only do ten? Do you get paid extra for these ten in theory?

I was hoping to start doing a half day a week for a little bit so as to get back up to speed on projects and get back in the swing of things. I was also going to attend any important meetings so people do not have to spend a lot of time updating me. Would this work in terms of keeping in touch day boundaries?

Thanks so much

I get paid my usual rate. But only during the unpaid period.

It's a max of 10 whether you do one hour or an 8 hour shift so your half days would count as a full one

You get 10 KIT days.

They are either paid or unpaid. There is no right to be paid your normal salary if you attend them. Its upto your employer if they pay and at what level etc.

They are by agreement. I.e. your employer can't force you in to use them and you can't force your employer to allow you to use them.
