Will I Be Paid Any Worked KIT Days In Addition To Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP)?

No. Employees who agree to work KIT days will not be paid for work done in addition to SMP. The statutory rules provide for payment at a rate no less than the weekly value of SMP for work done on a KIT day, so if you work 10 hours on a KIT day with a contractual payment of £145.00 you will not receive the £145.00 in addition to the weekly rate of SMP (£139.58 from 6 April 2015) however since that exceeds the SMP rate you will be paid £145.00 instead of SMP.  If you work 8 hours on a KIT day and the contractual payment is £80.00, you will receive £139.58 SMP which is higher than the contractual payment. Payment is made of the higher value only.
