KIT Days

University employees can work up to 10 days during their maternity, adoption or additional paternity leave as 'keeping in touch days' (KIT days).

Whilst on maternity leave, you can take up to 10 KIT days without your maternity leave or pay being affected.  You are not obliged to undertake any work during your maternity leave, if you prefer not to.

Arrangements for KIT days need to be made in advance, with your line manager, who will inform HR that you will be undertaking a KIT day (e-mail: hradvice@le.ac.uk).  HR will then confirm the details of your KIT day(s) in writing.

For further information, please see section 9 of the maternity procedure.
