The section of the HR site provides advice and guidance on the terms and condition for adoption leave and pay.
Adoption leave is available to any member of staff who is the primary carer of a newly and legally adopted child, either from the UK or overseas, under the age of 18.
Adoption leave is also available for staff who have had a child through a surrogacy arrangement and commits to applying for a parental or adoption order.
Only one parent in a couple can take adoption leave and pay. The other parent can take new parent support (paternity) leave.
