I am curious about what happens with holidays in regards to maternity leave. I am due at the end of April next year. In my current job I am entitled to 31 paid holiday days and the are to be taken from January to December.
Will I still be entitled to all of these even if I am off?
And if so can I take them at the start of maternity?
Also if I decided not to go back to work would I need to pay them back?
Very confused, thanks

You will accrue all your normal holiday entitlement for the duration of time you are off on maternity. If you want to tag it onto the end or beginning of your maternity leave you are also entitled to do so. If however you decide not to go back to work you would have to pay ypur holiday entitlement back on a pro rata basis. also if you go back to work on reduced hours but have taken full time holiday allowance again you would have to pay that back
