Just wondering if anyone could help please? I am intending to take some of the 16 weeks additional unpaid leave after the 26 weeks of maternity leave finishes. Does anyone know if you take your annual leave after the 26 weeks maternity leave or if this is taken after any unpaid leave? Thanks in advance :thnk

Where I work you get your annual leave & bank holidays accrued before you start parental leave.

Where i work you have to take your unpaid leave and then your annual leave after that. We weren't allowed take it after maternity leave.

If you are taking the unpaid tbris runs straight from the 26 weeks If you took annual leave yoid break the maternity part so you won't qualify for the credits on unpaid

Sorry ms organised the others are right total baby brain here I was mixing up the unpaid maternity leave & parental leave.You must take the unpaid maternity leave directly after the 26weeks paid.
