Im 34 wks pregnant and trying to get my head around this maternity and paid parental leave thing.
I know Im entitled to 18 wks full or 28 wks half pay from my employer, which has to start at the latest on my babys actual date of birth.
I am also eligible for the paid parental leave scheme from the government.
My question is do i get one or the other or am I entitled to both? Can I take the mat leave first then take the PPL?
Ive tried googling it but I just dont understand if I get one or both??
Thanks in advance.
