Resigning during maternity leave

    Hello all, please could you clarify for me if my thinking is right?
    I am on maternity leave but intend to move away and therefore will have to resign from my post. If I resign by May 31st 2011 and return to work for two weeks before the summer holidays I would then revert back to my usual full pay for the time worked plus summer holidays. However would I still have to pay back any money from my maternity money?

    You need to return to work for 13 weeks to keep all your maternity pay. Your schedule would mean only 6 or 7 weeks of return to employment.
    You'd need to return on 1st June to generate 13 weeks by 31st August.
    I don't know if weeks on sick leave count towards the 13.
    I had a colleague in the Jobcentre years ago who returned from maternity leave and then went on sick leave (Post Natal depression) a short time later.
