Flexible Working Opportunities

Statutory Paternity Leave

This is available to employees who have 26 weeks continuous service leading into the 15th week before the expected week of confinement. The employee must have, or expect to have responsibility for the child's upbringing and be the biological father or the mother's husband or partner (ie. not the child's father).

The entitlement is to take one week's consecutive paternity leave from the date of the birth or other chosen day, and leave should be completed within 56 days of the actual birth. During paternity leave employees will receive Statutory Paternity Pay or 90% of average weekly pay, whichever is the lesser.
