Deciding not to return
If you do not intend to return to work, or are unsure, it is helpful if you discuss this with us as early
as possible. If you decide not to return you should give notice of resignation in accordance with
your contract. The amount of maternity leave left to run when you give notice must be at least
equal to your contractual notice period, otherwise we may require you to return to work for the
remainder of the notice period.
Once you have given notice that you will not be returning to work, you cannot change your mind
without our agreement.
This does not affect your right to receive SMP.
