The Regulations have effect in relation to an employee whose expected week of childbirth begins on or after 5 October 2008, an employee whose child is expected to be placed with him for adoption on or after that date or, in cases of overseas adoption, an adopter whose child enters Northern Ireland on or after the same date.
Employees on additional maternity or adoption leave are entitled, like employees taking ordinary leave, to the benefit of all the non-remuneration terms and conditions of employment that would have applied if they had not been absent. The amendments apply to employees with an expected week of childbirth on or after 5 October 2008, and those with a child expected to be placed with them for adoption on or after this date.
