    An update: Just had a call from the fairwork ombudsman in reply to an email i sent, what my boss said about "special maternity leave" to dock my 12 months unpaid maternity leave is incorrect - it's not something work can force me to do, does not cover appointments, does not cover sporadic sickness.... Now just have to figure out how to tell him where he can stick it!!!!

    Can you still take holidays allowance you have left over before the start of your maternity leave? I was hoping to add 5 days I have left this year to the start of my maternity leave so I’d be off for 12 months and 1 week but my HR told me my holiday would be included in 12 months????? That doesn’t make any sense… Does it mean I basically loose my days off?!

    No you don't lose your days off but the total amount of time off an employer has to give you is 12 months including any annual or LSL. It just means you can increase the number of weeks/days you receive pay for, rather than unpaid. If they didn't do this, some people could be off for close to 18 months if they had LSL as well as a large leave balance, for example.
