Hi there. I've just returned to work 4 days per week after mat leave.
However as I have so much annual leave to take, I'm only working 3 days til the end of the year.
I get one day working from home but the other 2 I have a long commute and I'm finding it tough to juggle even just 3 days with the one baby.
I'm considering having another one soon, but not sure how long it will take us to conceive again.
I'm considering asking if they would drop my hours to 3 days per week.
How would this work with maternity pay? Does it affect smp?
