Notifying your employer

Notifying your employer If you intend to take paternity leave you have to give your employer notice that specifies: • the expected week of childbirth • the length of the leave that you intend to take (i.e. either one week or two weeks’ leave) • the date that you have chosen for your leave to begin. You can choose one of the following dates for the leave to begin: • the date the child is born • a date falling a set number of days after the child is born • a specified date which is after the first day of the expected week of birth. You must give your employer notice of your paternity leave in or before the 15th week before the expected week of birth or if this is not possible as soon as is reasonably practicable. You can work out when this deadline is by counting back 15 Sundays from the Sunday immediately before the due date. Once you have given your employer notice, you can change your mind provided you give them notice at least 28 days before the original start date or your new start date, whichever is soonest. During paternity leave All your terms and conditions (e.g. accrual of holidays, pension contributions, access to company car) continue as if you had not taken leave, except your right to receive your normal pay (you will receive paternity pay instead). Return to work You are entitled to return to the same job on the same terms and conditions as before you went away. Protection from detriment and dismissal Your employer must not subject you to any detriment or dismiss you because you have taken or intend to take paternity leave. Once the child is born and, as soon as is reasonably practicable, you must let your employer know the date of birth. If you have asked for the leave to start on the day your child is born and you are at work that day then the leave will begin on the following day. 6 7
