Additional Paternity Leave and Pay – Final Regulations published in draftWednesday, January 27th, 2010
The right to additional paternity leave and pay will be introduced from April 2011 (although some employees gain entitlement before that date). Following a third consultation period in late 2009, the Government has now published the final Regulations in draft. They are expected to come into force from 6 April 2010, providing up to a year for employers to prepare.
We published an article in this newsletter in September 2009 that covered the new entitlements in some detail. In a coming newsletter, when we have had time to check over the final Regulations, we will update that article and re-issue it in this newsletter.
For readers interested in studying the Regulations straight away, we have provided links to the six sets of documents below.
