Maternity pay question

(4 Posts)

My company provide advanced maternity pay, stating 12 weeks full pay, then SMP.

My wages are all over the place and they say they calculated 90% of my average weekly wages and pay me that for the 12 weeks - how is that 12 weeks full pay?!

Any advice appreciated - thanks in advance

My company do the same - you get 12 weeks pay (approx 3 months) at 90% of your usual salary, then SMP for the remaining period (approx another 6 months). Then nothing.

You need to check with payroll though as 90% obviously isn't the full pay they have stated (in their policy).

My company use a payroll company, I have asked them to clarify the position. The wording in my company policy for the advanced maternity pay clearly states full pay, not 90%
