Informing Your Line Manager

You are encouraged to advise your Line Manager as soon as your pregnancy is confirmed to ensure any health and safety issues are taken into account and to help with departmental planning.

You can also ask to see your Employment Support Services team at any time to discuss your entitlements and to ask any queries you may have in general.

In order not to lose your right to maternity leave and pay it is important that you submit a MATB1 (form issued by midwife or GP to confirm EWC after 20th week of pregnancy) and an application for maternity leave no later than the 15th week before EWC.
