This will not end their maternity leave or mean that they will lose their SMP for weeks while they are working. Take a copy of form MATB1 maternity certificate and return the original to your employee.

They must check the terms of their old employment contract. Although his employer has provided that the £60k will be used to settle all their claims, including SMP, in full and definitively, the agreement does not explicitly mention SMP.

Since the applicant remained active within 11 weeks of her expected week of birth, she was entitled to SMP. Following the ACAS conciliation procedure, the case was settled using a COT3 form. Form COT3 confirmed that it had “settled all [the claimant`s] claims regarding her employment contract and termination.” . . .
