Need some advice on returning to work notice period for maternity to update our policies. Changes are
‘If you want to return to work before the end of your maternity leave, you must give your employer at least 8 weeks notice of the date you will be returning. You can change your mind about returning to work early providing you give at least 8 weeks notice before the date you now intend to return or the date you had intended to return, whichever is earliest.’
Will this changes apply to teachers, who are currently on 28 days notice as per Burgundy Book?
Would appreciate feedback from anyone who has come across this situation?
