Maternity, Paternity and Adoption
Statutory Maternity Pay
When a female member of staff is pregnant, she's entitled to time off for antenatal hospital appointments and pregnancy-related sickness. There is also specific legislation covering maternity leave, entitlements and returning to work.
Statutory Paternity Pay
Similar to Maternity Pay, new fathers (whether the biological father or the mother's partner) are entitled to paid leave. We help you explore who qualifies for what benefits and show you how to manage payments.
Statutory Adoption Pay
Newly-matched parents of adopted children are entitled to paid time off and the same kinds of benefits as other parents. We show you how to manage this.
