Manage paternity leave where the employee's partner has a miscarriage or stillbirth, or her baby dies after birth

Key points

  • An employee whose partner has a miscarriage or stillbirth may still be entitled to take statutory paternity leave, depending on when their loss occurs.
  • Where the baby dies after the birth, the employee will retain his or her full rights to statutory paternity leave, irrespective of the timing of the birth.
