Parental leave policy

Purpose and scope

It is recognised that parents (male and female) may want to take time off from their work to spend time with their children. This policy provides a fair and consistent approach to the granting of parental leave.

Parental leave applies to both parents of children who are either born or adopted. 

Entitlement to parental leave is a separate right in addition to the statutory rights to maternity, adoption, shared parental or paternity leave and pay. 

This policy, which sets out statutory entitlements, does not form part of any employee’s contract of employment and we may amend it at any time.
