hello, what is the current lenght of maternity leave ?

Statutory Maternity Leave is 52 weeks. It's made up of:

  • 26 weeks of Ordinary Maternity Leave
  • 26 weeks of Additional Maternity Leave

You don't have to take 52 weeks but you must take 2 weeks' leave after your baby is born (or 4 weeks if you work in a factory).
