    -annual leave (or any other paid leave such as taken during this period such as LSL) does count towards the 12 months off employers are legally required to grant you (I think this is where your employer is getting confused/trying to deny you by saying your 22 weeks AL is counted as maternity leave).

    Hope that helps. Good luck!
    Thanks for referring me to this thread LMS. What you've said above is correct, except unpaid parental leave and annual leave can be taken at the same time, but this shouldn't affect the OP anyway.

    But OP you absolutely continue to accrue leave while on annual leave so are entitled to your LSL.

    I'm also in HR and second this. You are entitled to your LSL.

    Are u not allowed to make 1 change to your return date to work. If this is the case.. Then u should be able to take what ever leave you want.

    Ok so this is what HR have told me

    at my work I'm entitled to 4 weeks full paid maternity leave that gets used first (never got it). Then I can use annual leave after that but because I'm on maternity leave you can't accrue time towards Lsl. She said they will give me the 4 weeks maternity leave pay that I should have got.

    To get my lsl I need to return to work for 9 weeks full time.

    I work for a large company but the hotel division obviously someone has made a mistake should I take it further?

    Hope this makes sense

    I would definitely be taking it further. Have you got hold of fair work? Are you in a union?
    If they didn't give you the paid mat leave then were you even on mat leave? Is there a provision to take the pro rata LSL?

    But that 9 weeks would have been covered by my annual leave it's not 9 weeks on top of the 22 weeks annual leave

    No not in a union! My dad said that once you do 7 years you should get pro rata lsl but I'm not sure
