Now I haven't found anything online anywhere about alleged changes to the maternity leave scheme but was talking with one of the girls at work last night who is 17 weeks PG and really confused. She said that the government is changing it in July so that you only get 12 weeks and that there are other changes as well.
AS i said have found nothing to back this up but I'm not the PG one yet. Considering not TTC till April till after my wedding I'd really like to know that this person has made a mistake and the pay will be the same amount. Otherwise I've wasted all my time paying taxes to help out all my friends with baby bonus's and Maternity leave and I wont be able to afford much time off at all after a wedding and building a new house.
Hope I have not confused anyone who is willing to read this, Have just come off a 12 hr nightshift and need sleep. I know if I go to bed and don't post this now I will have forgotten in about 6 hrs.
