Post subject: Told by employer before mat leave that I was entitled to SMP
I was told by my employer when I made them aware that I was pregnant that I would be entitled to full maternity pay, however once on maternity leave I wasn't paid for two months and after calling them several times to find out why i finally learnt that I hadn't been with the company for long enough and so they weren't going to pay me and I had to claim MA from the government. They had left me for two months with no money and now at the third month I am still waiting for my MA claim to be processed. So my question is would I be entitled to some sort of compensation from the company I am employed by as I haven't been able to pay my rent and am now being threatened with eviction?
