Statutory Paternity Pay and Statutory Adoption Pay (General) (Amendment) Regulations 2014 come into force
Implementation date: 1 December 2014
The Regulations amend the Statutory Paternity Pay and Statutory Adoption Pay (General) Regulations 2002 (SI 2002/2822) to align the notification period for statutory paternity pay with the notification period for statutory paternity leave. The Regulations also amend the provisions for varying the choice of when the pay period will begin so that they are aligned with those for statutory paternity leave and align the time for providing information and evidence regarding entitlement to paternity pay with that for providing notice. There are corresponding provisions in respect of adoption. The amendments apply to employees with an expected week of childbirth on or after 5 April 2015, and those with a child expected to be placed with them for adoption on or after this date.
