The regulations that cover maternity rights do not state what an employee should be paid for working a KITS day but employers are expected to pay your normal rate of pay. You are entitled to be paid at least the National Minimum Wage, for more information on the National minimum wages:

If you work a Keeping in touch day during your maternity you must continue to be paid your weekly Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP).

This is the question we put to employment law solicitor Hetal Gir.
