Hi!!!! I have read through my schools maternity guidance very closely, My due date is in the last week of the summer term, I know that many people are "late," and in the documentation it states that "maternity leave can start no later than the day after childbirth." as I will be off anyway I am really keen to work for as long as I can so that I can maximise the amount of time I can financially afford to have off with the baby. I know that you have to telly our employer the "expected week of childbirth" and obviously your due date but can I say that I will be available to work until I actually give birth, then if I am a couple of weeks late I won't be getting maternity pay, during the school holidays for no reason? It doesn't say ANYWHERE that the latest day maternity can start is "your due date?" any advice????
