I wonder if anyone can give me some advice, please.
I'm currently 29 weeks pregnant, with baby due on July 29th.
I want to take the full 52 weeks maternity leave.
I currently have 15 days holiday left for this year. The HR lady said I could carry my holidays over to next year and take them at the end of my maternity leave.
Today the company sent me a letter in which it says:
"Our holiday year runs from 1 January to 31 December. If the holiday year is due to finish during your maternity leave or shortly after it ends, you should plan with us to use your holiday entitlement before starting your maternity leave. Alternatively you might consider ending your maternity leave early and transferring onto paid holiday in order to use up your entitlement. Any of your 5.6 weeks of statutory holiday entitlement for the holiday year that is not taken before starting your maternity leave can be carried over to the next holiday year and should be taken immediately before returning to work"
Is it true that if I carry over holidays I have to cut short my maternity leave to use up my holiday? I thought I could fully use the 52 weeks and then attach the 15 days at the end.
Thanks for advice.
