      Seriously?? My European counterparts get 1 to 3 years maternity leave and 3 months vacation. I swear we don't get anything done in August because everyone on the other side of the pond is on vacation. Most of those folks are on the mainland of Europe (and the 3 year maternity leaves are only in Germany), so maybe it's different in the UK. And this is a huge corporation...17,000 employees, so I think that helps. But I swear I thought our UK folks were covered under law for sick pay! That sucks! Most people get sick within a 5 year timespan! What do you do if that happens? Sheesh! That's nuts!

      Lucy! Let us know how everything turns out!!

        Seriously lmao the law is changing but now you get 6 weeks pay at 90% for maternity leave then its £117 for the next 26 weeks, you can then take another 26 weeks with no pay but its a maximum of 12 months. They are changing it to 9 months at £117 per week. Sick pay it depends company to company but the government give you £27 a day after the first 3 days - i think its about that anyway but those first 3 days nothing lol so if you are off you take it without pay or hols! I had a migraine went in at 11 they made me take a half day hol!! So i said fine I want the extra 1 1.2 hours back and now work my contracted hourse - screw the extra hours for no pay and working dinner times lol

        I get about 28 days hols a year but have to keep 3 for xmas when the office is shut!! but I negotiated them, ie either you give me them or i won't come lol

        EU is different tho they get proper benefits we get shite all because we haven't adopted all their policies lol

          Well I get no sick pay at all. If I'm sick, I'm made to feel guilty if I take a day off, and it's either no pay, or they take it out of my frickin V-pay.

          It's rediculous.

            Our vacation pay and sick pay are all rolled up in one. We also have to use those hours for holiday's off since we are open 365 days a year. I earn about 32 days a year. It goes quick when you want to take holidays off plus a normal vacation. Plus we have to use those hours for FMLA purposes as well.

              I get 2 vaca days a month, and can carry up to 24 at a time. I also get 1 sick day each month and can carry up to 90 of them. Sadly, I only have like 10 sick days... Plus we get off or leave early for practically every holiday. Yay for me, for my job, for once!

                I would ask you boss to see what they say. What about if you borrow days from your fellow employees and give them back next year. Good Luck!

                  I agree with Alyssa - get it in writing. I don't see how taking time without pay is a huge deal. Sorry you are having to deal with that right now. t is the last thing you need.
