The article discusses a variety of issues concerning the tax guidance on salary sacrifice schemes and maternity leave issued in Great Britain. The guidance cites that adoption leave can be taken by male or female employees, so there is no direct discrimination issue whether or not benefits are provided. It requires an employee to have 26 weeks' service to qualify for an adoption leave. It also cites that employer pension contributions must continue during paid maternity leave under the Social Security Act 1989.
