hi, hoping for some advice before I speak to my head or the union unnecessarily. I started maternity leave in February 2017 and returned in December. On my return I noticed that my permanent TLR 2a hadn't been applied in my December pay. This was sorted out and backdated this month. However speaking to colleagues, some feel that my TLR should not have been removed when I started maternity leave and should have been kept as part of my salary when determining the maternity pay I was to receive. Looking back at payslips during the time my yearly salary clearly drops. Can anyone advise me on whether or not this should have happened?
