Maternity Leave and Workplace Pensions

wpid-paternityPaid leave

During paid leave, you and your employee carry on making pension contributions.

Maternity and other parental leave

You and your employee will continue to make pension contributions if they are getting paid during maternity leave.

If they are not getting paid, you as the employer will still have to make pension contributions in the first 26 weeks of their leave (‘Ordinary Maternity Leave’). You have to carry on making contributions afterwards if it’s in their contract.  Check your workplace maternity policy.
