It all really depends upon the company that you work for and how long you have been there. If you are currently taking unpaid leave, and you want the leave to be extended due to a second child, the employer does not have to pay for that maternity leave. However, some employers do decide to make some payments within some instances, it all depends upon their policies. The best thing to do would be to ask you employer and if you are not satisfied with their response, you can contact the IEU to discuss your situation and to see what your rights are.

Bear in mind also, that if you choose to extend your maternity leave and you do not return to work between periods, you may not have the right to return to the same job as you had before. Again, this depends entirely on the company policies, but it is something you should find out about.
