Statutory Paternity Pay and Statutory Adoption Pay (General) (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2005 come into force
Implementation date: 6 April 2005
The Regulations amend the Statutory Paternity Pay and Statutory Adoption Pay (General) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2002 to ensure that, where an employee is reinstated or re-engaged pursuant to a dispute resolution procedure, any break in the continuity of his or her employment between the dismissal and the reinstatement or re-engagement will be disregarded for the purposes of entitlement to statutory adoption or paternity pay. They will apply to reinstatements or re-engagements which take place on or after 6 April 2005. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
