Back to work (NHS maternity leave)
Hi, I’m on maternity now, and yesterday I spoke with my manager and he told me that I need back to work after my maternity for my normal shift for three months!!! I read maternity policy and I now that I have to back to work for three months and then I do not repaying anything but I can change my working pattern, right? Can someone hel me with this?
Hi Alex. I work for the NHS and think your way manager may be taking you for a ride!
You can apply for flexible working (I'd start now!) talk to the HR team, they will be able to tell you without bias or hidden agenda what you can and can't do xx
Its worth keeping in mind that you can request flexible working but there's no guarantee it'll be accepted. Good luck xx
