    Im not sure I understand what you mean, it sounds a little confusing.

    Can you not talk to your boss, or someone where you work and ask them to explain it?
    Maybe research it on the internet too?????

    You need to be clear about things like this hun.

    Sorry I couldnt be much more help!

    Im thinking what Sarah meant was that if you are off on maternity for a year you get wages at a fraction of what you usually get but in theory could be off sick for a year and get full pay.
    Either way, you will still get flowers.
    Take care

    But, im thinking again, if you were on full pay you wouldnt get as much tax credit as you would on a smaller wage so I expect it should kind of even itself out.
