Adoption leave policy (adoption within the UK)

Authors: Lynda Macdonald and Lavina Daryanani

When to use this model adoption leave policy

Use this model policy to guide managers and employees in relation to employees' entitlement to adoption leave and pay when adopting within the UK.

Note: The usual rules for calculating normal weekly pay for the purpose of determining entitlement to, and the rate of, statutory adoption pay are adjusted for employees who are furloughed under the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. See Family-related statutory payments and furlough leave in Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.
