Do You Get Maternity Pay On An Apprenticeship

An apprentice enjoys the same employment rights as normal workers regarding pregnancy and maternity leave.

Apprentices, like all other employees, have the following rights:

  • Prepaid time off for prenatal checkups
  • A risk assessment for health and safety is conducted if there is any sign of occupational hazard.
  • You should not be subjected to prejudice just because you are pregnant.
  • With up to 52 weeks of maternity leave

You may claim Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP) if you meet the service and earnings criteria. However, your average salary must be at least the lower earnings limit throughout the calculation period. If you are not qualified for SMP, you may be eligible for Maternity Allowance.
