Inform a worker that they are not eligible to take a period of ordinary parental leave requested

Key points

  • Where a worker has requested a period of ordinary parental leave, but is not eligible to take it, the employer should write to the individual explaining the reasons for this.
  • For example, the individual may have insufficient service with the organisation, or have already exhausted their entitlement to ordinary parental leave in respect of the child.
