Ordinary Paternity Leave

You are eligible to two weeks' Ordinary Paternity Leave regardless of service to allow you to care for your child and partner. If you have more than six months' service at the 15th week before the baby is due, then you may qualify, subject to various criteria, for two weeks' Statutory Paternity Pay (SPP). 

If you have more than 12 months' service when the baby is born/adopted, then you will qualify for two week's normal pay inclusive of SPP. 

If you intend to take Ordinary Paternity Leave, please complete and return the application form to HR by the end of the 15th week before the baby is due, or 14 days before the expected date of placement. 

You can change your mind about when you want to start Ordinary Paternity Leave providing you give to the Human Resources Department 28 days' written notice.
