Paternity leave and pay

Flowchart for managing paternity leave and pay procedures

Last Modified  02 May 2015

This flowchart outlines the various steps to be followed to grant and manage paternity leave and pay. You can also access a PDF version of the complete flowchart. If the employee notifies that they wish to switch to shared parental leave during this process, and they are eligible to do so, we recommend that you use the Shared parental leave flowchart to follow the steps of this procedure.

Go to our Paternity leave and pay topic pages for employment law information and our 'How to' guide to take you through the procedure in detail.
