Our expert says:
The companies are not obliged to give any maternity pay whatsoever. This obligation only arises out of the contract or letters of appointment. If in fat you can show that other female employees had received 70% for four months and that this was a trend, then you could make the allegation that it is part and parcel of the employment relationship. If there is only one incident and this has now been refuted, then you certainly don't have a claim for maternity benefits.
