Q6.2 My Baby Is In Hospital. Do I Need To Take Maternity Leave?

A6.2 Yes it is a legal requirement that you take a minimum of 2 weeks immediately after the birth however the occupational scheme rules allow you to return to work and take the rest of your leave when your baby comes home by mutual agreement between you and your manager. However, if you choose to do this you will forfeit SMP at the lower rate for each week worked.
