Abstract/Citation: Amends the Maternity Pay Regulations by providing that the maternity pay period begins from the week following the week in which a woman stops working whether or not this falls after the 6th week before the expected week of confinement; by prescribing the beginning of the maternity pay period where a woman is absent from work wholly or partly because of pregnancy or confinement after the 6th week before the expected week of confinement; and by providing that the entitlement provisions are no longer modified where a woman is dismissed or not offered a new contract of service before the qualifying week for statutory maternity pay. Amends the Maternity Allowance Regulations by omitting references to the maternity allowance period ending not later than the 11th week following the expected week of confinement and inserts a new definition of the maternity allowance period, where a woman was not entitled to maternity allowance at the 11th week before the expected week of confinement but subsequently becomes entitled. Amends the Maternity Allowance (Work Abroad) Regulations by substituting a reference to a period of employment of 66 weeks (instead of 52 weeks) for certain women employed abroad.
