50% of salary for 12 weeks in addition to SMP

How long do you have to work at the company to qualify?

Be on the payroll in the ‘qualifying week’ - the 11th week before the expected week of childbirth. Have been continuously employed for at least 1 year up to any day in the qualifying week. Declare an intention to return to work immediately following your leave for a minimum period of 3 months.

If you decide to cease employment whilst on leave what is the clawback policy?

If you do not return to local authority employment for a continuous period of more than 3 months immediately following your leave, you will need to repay the 12 weeks occupational maternity pay to the councils.
