Am very confused, I worked out that I had gained 24 days holiday entitlement whilst on maternity leave. I read somewhere that if I hand in my notice I should be paid for these days - is this true? Has anyone recived this after resiging whilst on mat leave?
Yes if you are leaving employment you are entitled to be paid for any holiday accrued during maternity leave and not taken, at your usual salary rate.
As it's fairly new legislation, I would just ring and make sure that's been sorted to make sure you get it in your final pay, rather than having to chase it and get a new final payslip and P45 afterwards.
