Paternity – Leave & Pay

Notice Of Intention To Take Paternity Leave

Employees must inform their employers of their intention to take paternity leave by the end of the fifteenth week before the baby is expected, unless this is not reasonably practicable. They must tell their employers:

  • the week the baby is due
  • whether they wish to take one or two weeks’ leave
  • when they want their leave to start.

Employees can change their mind about the date on which they want their leave to start providing they tell their employer at least 28 days in advance (unless this is not reasonably practicable). Employees must tell their employers the date they expect any payments of SPP to start at least 28 days in advance, unless this is not reasonably practicable.
