Purpose and scope
The purpose of this policy is to confirm and communicate the Company’s paternity leave arrangements and application procedures to ensure that all employees requesting paternity leave are treated fairly and consistently throughout the organisation.
This policy applies to all employees and covers applications for paternity leave and pay in respect of children who are either born or adopted. Employees who claim paternity leave in respect of a child, may not also claim maternity or adoption leave [under the Company’s separate Maternity or Adoption Policy][in accordance with the statutory provisions for maternity and adoption] in respect of the same pregnancy or placement.
The Company’s paternity arrangements can apply to both female and male employees so long as the eligibility criteria has been met.
