Hi, Please could you help me with a query about maternity pay? I am a part time teacher, and until September 2015 was working on a 0.8 timetable and I had a TLR. From September 2015 my hours were reduced to 0.64 and I no longer had the TLR. My maternity leave started in November 2015. I was under the impression that my contractual maternity pay would be calculated on my earnings from weeks 17-25 of the pregnancy, when I was working a 0.8 timetable, but my school has said that the rate is worked out according to my timetable when my maternity leave started. Is this correct? Also, I was paying childcare vouchers during the qualifying weeks, which I understand could affect my SMP. As I was M6 with a TLR but paying £243 per month in childcare vouchers, should I expect to receive full SMP? I cannot find the answers to these questions anywhere, so if you could help I'd be very grateful. Thanks.
