Impact of Maternity Leave on ILR

Post by AbeerNada » Mon May 20, 2019 7:26 am

Hi

I am currently working on a Tier 2 visa ( main applicant ) and started maternity leave 3 months ago. My initial plan was to take one year of maternity leave but at a second thought I am concerned that it might have an impact on ILR.

I am entitled to occupational maternity pay and statutory maternity pay and I am planning to resume working at the end of this one year of maternity leave.

1-Will being on maternity leave affect ILR given that my salary will obviously drop below the pay threshold ?

2- can this reset the count towards ILR ?

3- will the year of maternity leave still cont towards ILR ?

Thanks
Abeer

Maternity is permitted. Read through the policy guidance link below re ILR.

Thanks for your reply

I couldn’t find the answers to my questions in that guide. could you refer to a particular section in case if I missed it ?

Sorry for the inconvenience
