Just looking at what time i can take of for maternity leave. I now i'm entitled to 26 wks but how much unpaid leave are we allowed take.
HI sassy ,
i don't know the answer to your queation.
Just wanted to say a big hello.
How are you feeling?
There is a girl in work who will be out in total for almost a year and my company are not the most generous so I assume thats for everyone.
16wks unpaid AFAIk
Hi bellabella. Nice to hear from you . I'm doing fine. Still no major pregnancy symtoms, just a bump. Have a vist with consultant today so i will get to see junior again. Can't wait.
How are you getting on?
Do you just love it?
16 weeks unpaid but you are also entitles to 14 weeks unpaid parental leave before the child is 8 so you could take this too

Some companies though (mine) require you to take the holidays you have accrued up to your maternity leave beforehand. For ex, I start mat leave next Monday so I had to take so many days holidays beforehand, the rest and the bank holidays I can add on. Hope that makes sense.
It's best to check with your own company.
I'm meeting with HR next week to work that out. I'm going to ask if i can carry some days over and then take most of my days holidays for next year as well. Hopefuly i will finish start of jan and wont be back until middle of oct.
