Good Afternoon smile
I'm just getting myself a little bit confused.
I've had approximate say 80 days or more off work recently, due to a miscarriage, depression and anxiety, then getting pregnant and falling and bleeding, then more depression.
So online it says you have had to work for a company for 26 weeks to qualify for maternity pay, but do I have to take off the days that I've been off on the sick ??
Just abit confused ? I've been working with this company since February.

It's how long you've been employed, not how many days you've actually been in working. So you don't have to take the sick days off, in my non-expert opinion. Hopefully someone with specific knowledge of this will be along shortly to confirm or deny that!

Hi, It's 26 weeks continuous service, i.e. how long you've been employed. Whilst off sick you are still an employee so it's calculated from your start date with the company.
