    Hi, am I correct in thinking that I can’t be forced to take maternity leave until I am 36 weeks pregnant?

    I have been signed off and am feeling a bit stressed and anxious about everything!

    If you are off sick 4 weeks before your expected due date, then the employer can trigger mat leave.
    Before that date, they can't.
