Paying back extra maternity pay

    Hello All!

    I have been in receipt of the 12 weeks half maternity pay, on the condition I will return to work for 13 weeks after my maternity leave ends.

    Can I clarify that being off sick/on sick pay (after my maternity leave ends) will count towards returning to work for these '13 weeks'?

    Did you go back between maternity leave and being ill?

    Yes, I went back for 2 weeks only. Then, I went off with PND...

    I think that in that case, you are "back at work", just happening to be off ill, and so this period will count towards your return to work.
