I’m a trustee of a small charity.
We employed someone on an 18-month grant-funded contract, which was extened for another 12-months. She went on maternity leave last November and her contract ends at the end of February. We have gone through a formal redundancy process which she is happy with.
However, we aren’t clear at what point her redundancy payment is due: when her contract of employment ends (February) or when we stop paying her statutory maternity pay (July). Also, what should the payment be based on – her full-time salary or her most recent payments (maternity pay)?
Can anyone advise?
