What Employees Should Do When They Find Out They Are Pregnant
In this video we look at what you need to do as an employee when you find out you are pregnant.
Hello, and welcome to the Legal Minute, today we are going to be talking about what employees should do when they find out they are pregnant.
You should inform your employer of your pregnancy as soon as possible in writing, you can notify them of the date your baby is due as well as the date on which you intend to start your maternity leave.
Once you are 20 weeks from your due date, your doctor or registered midwife will provide you with a “MAT B1” form, this will enable you to claim either Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP) from your employer or Maternity Allowance from Jobcentre Plus, therefore you should give it to your employer as soon as possible.
