Paternity and partner leave and pay

This policy explains how much time off and pay you can have following the birth or adoption of a child. 

  • You can take ten days paternity/partner leave on full pay
  • You can take leave before or up to eight weeks after the birth or adoption, depending on your length of service.
  • You can take leave in blocks or on separate dates
  • If your partner chooses to end their maternity or adoption leave early, you can choose to opt into Shared Parental Leave with your partner and share the remaining weeks' leave and pay.
