I only accrue 3 months of holiday in my maternity leave............I think it is different each place, worth asking as I thought I got my 4 weeks, but I dont

I work for the NHS and am still entitled to accrue my full holiday allowance for the year providing I return to work following mat leave and complete the year (ie, dont leave shortly after returnig).

Yes - you are entitled to it - you need to request it asap to ensure they can approve it in time. They can decoline if business needs are greater.

I'm taking 9 months official maternity leave but will use 4 weeks holiday before I go and then will be converting the rest to part time hours (I do 37 at the moment but plan to go back for 25) to give me an extra 5 weeks off when that finishes. This means I can have 11 months off and only be on reduced pay for the 3 months of SMP during my official maternity leave. I hope that makes sense!

Thats a good idea bec, i might see about doing that. I'm taking 4weeks leave before starting mat leave. Then having either 9or 12months off depending on money. Then i'll have another 6weeks leave to use-ill add 3weeks onto the end of mat leave then keep the other 3 for a holiday later in the year. The hardest decision is knowing how long to have as mat leave. Why cant they just pay you full pay for a year!?

I've booked off 9 months in total, but the last month is holiday - as it falls in December, I'm not using very much actual holiday - its all bank holidays and time we get off at Christmas anyway etc. Will be painful returning to work in January though!

you should be entitled to it, but each company has there own policies!!
i saved up all my holidays so had 3weeks before my maternity leave and then took the other 3weeks before i was due to go back... went back for 6month then found out it was the worst mistake of my life... and left!

I think you still accrue leave, I know I do, My problem has been using all my leave as i've been off sick a lot with this pregnancy, so I will probably take 4-5 wks off at the end of my mat leave. (I'm currently signed off, and my mat leave starts at 36 wks.)
