Occupational maternity pay in academies

Discussion in 'Pay and conditions' started by cg82, Feb 29, 2012.

  1. On accepting a job in an academy, you would agree the terms that they impose in all areas of school life. Unfortunately, if you start in an academy, you have no continuous service. If you reach your 26th week of pregnancy before a certain length of time (i forget what it is), you will not be entitled to OMP (academy or state).
    The academy will be able to tell you explicitly but might be put off if you are asking about this before even acquiring the job.
  2. It may not be the case that service is not regarded as continuous, it will depend on the academy. Many (most) of the new style "convertor academies" have undertaken to maintain t&cs at least as good as the maintained sector for all staff. If the academy has made such a commitment they should honour transfer of service.
