Very confused: - I am currently on maternity leave. My employer has been paying me 50% of my normal salary or SMP whichever is the greater. These figures are very close so I am not sure if SMP or 50% salary.
It would appear they have been deducting my childcare costs from this, is this right?
I'm certainly not an expert on this but I work for the NHS and was told to withdraw from the childcare voucher scheme before the 12th week of pregnancy or it would affect my maternity benefits. Never really understood why but followed their advice! Did you get any information when you joined the scheme? I'm really sorry but I don't know anything about redundancy so can't comment on that but I do think you should contact your employer or HR dept to see what is going on! Good luck, hope you get it sorted out soon.
