Time off for Antinatal
Nov 17, 2007 12:21PM
Does anyone know if there is a specific time length that your employer gives you for your midwife appointments/antinatal classes? Is there any maximum or minimum time limit?

All I know is that you are entitled to time off and the employers can't question you. I don't see how they can give you a time limit for appointments - what if they are running late and stuff!!
you could probably try checking with the cab, or even your mw to see if they have any guidelines for you.

Hi, they have to allow you 'reasonable time off' and also they can ask to see proof of your appointment. I think most places give appointment cards if you ask. So basically a couple of hours is fairly typical depending on how far you work from where you need to go to see your midwife etc.

Well it will take about 30/40min to get from work to where the classes are (which are 2 hours long) work said they will only pay for 2 hours and not travelling time or anything like that. i know i'll only lose about 1 or 2hours pay but it's just a bit annoying!!

Sounds like your work are being arsey - definately check with cab or mw to see if they can help with legalities.
Is it possible foryou to get on any evening classes? I made most of mine evening so hubby could come too.. and the threat of me potentialy taking 6 afternoons off work stopped boss grumbling at me when there was only 1 i can't have in an evening!
