Maternity pay & Entitlement
Hi All, I'm due in January and just had a look through my companies procedure which seems better than most at contractual pay for 26 weeks and SMP for 13 weeks. I fully expect to pay for my child but wow, on SMP of ??128 (or similar) a week how am I supposed to manage? I genuinely feel sorry for single parents. Due to our combined income we don't qualify for working tax credits and a lot of other things but it just seems really unfair you pay in to the system all your life and are shafted when you need the help! Sorry, rant over!
