Tier 2 extension during maternity leave

Post by Ambika88 » Fri Sep 06, 2019 3:51 pm

Hi,
I'm on tier 2 general from aug 2016, it got expired on aug 2019. So had to extend my tier 2 general last month, but still awaiting for the decision. As I have applied on priority service I should have received it by now. Since I'm on my maternity leave, they are taking time to decide?

Thanks in advance.

Do you meet the most up to date minimum salary requirement for your SOC?

What date did you apply exactly after getting the UCoS from your employer??

The tier 2 guidance notes has a section on maternity leave, which is allowed. You are not being penalised or discrimnated against because of it.

Thanks for your reply.

Before my maternity leave I did meet the minimum salary criteria.

My biometrics was on 2nd August. Right now I'm not getting my salary as I resume my work from next month.

The guidance below has information on maternity and what additional evidence HO require.
