my sil is not going to go back to work but she has just extended her mat leave for the extra 6 months unpaid will her hols still be building up in this time or not??? or is only the paid time you have off that you still build hols up
It will depend on her employer's annual leave policy - with some organisations, leave will accrue the whole time you're on maternity leave and with others, just while you're on paid maternity leave (not unpaid).
It seems to depend on each employer it should say in your SIL's contract but I didn't spot it in mine hence nice surprise. I nearly messed this up as I told HR that I didn't want the hours offered when we were discussing it and I wouldn't want them in 6 months time. she kindly told me to think about it otherwise I'd have out of pocket for that half year.
