Well an update from me, the boss rejected my request for annual and mat leave at half pay so I guess I'm not stopping work anytime soon. I can't risk wasting the paid weeks I've got on time before the Bub, it just seems wrong to take that away from the limited time I'll have off when he's actually here.
Soon as Mat leave finishes I'm looking for another job, somewhere a bit more family friendly.

Oh @ScubaGal that blows. I hope you find something better... when i went back to work (1st time) I was shunted into a corner and treated poorly (not even in my old job) within 6 months I'd won a promotional opportunity elsewhere - best thing ever. I am sure things will work out for you.

Any HR Experts out there: Annual leave / Paid Maternity Leave at half-pay?
It might also just be a policy that they don't do it. I worked at one place where we didn't do it because to do it involved manually entering each week so one would be entered as paid leave and the next week would be entered as unpaid leave and basically we didn't feel like spending hours entering someone's leave (in payroll time is always at a premium) so they could have the luxury of half-pay in a system that wasn't set up to easily do it. Especially when you're talking about one person's request vs. getting 4,000 other people paid.
Sorry, just giving you an insight into what could be behind their decision. It's not necessarily about them not being family friendly, there could easily be system constraints surrounding it.
