From 5 April 2015 the right to take additional paternity leave is replaced by shared parental leave. These documents are only valid in respect of employees who are currently on additional paternity leave or whose babies were due or placed for adoption before 5 April 2015.
These documents should NOT be used for any employee whose baby is due or placed for adoption on or after 5 April 2015. Instead you should refer to the documents relating to paternity leave
and shared parental leave
