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

[quote="little mrs sunshine":1bjo66f5]plus you can take all your hols and the bank holidays you missed while out on maternity.[/quote:1bjo66f5] 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.
