Hello everyone. I put a return to work after maternity leave date in my maternity leave letter as 26th March, but since having my baby I have changed my mind and would like to take the whole year off! This would mean I will go back at the end of June . I am getting really worried as I don't know if I will be forced to go back on 26th March as that is what I put in my letter I just have looked on the NUT website which said that I did not have to put a return date, but I was told by school that I needed to. Can anyone give me advice please. Thanks.
