I was doing Temp work for a company and fell pregnant 1month after working for them, I left 2months later and didnt work up till now. I was entitled to £112.75 a week maternity Pay throught the government which I found out about by goin to my local job centre!
If u have previously worked u should be entitled to something!

smp is now £117.00 per week (and sommin pence) if you have worked for your employer for 26 weeks you are entitled to smp or thier company maternity. if under 26 weeks you'll still get the £117.00 per week just through the job centre instead of from your employer.
i suggest those of you who are temps or are unsure to check your the terms and conditions of your contract. specially temps.
