Keeping in touch - Paternity leave and pay

Keeping in touch

Before they start statutory paternity leave, the employee and their employer should agree how they both want to:

  • keep in touch
  • cover the employee's work while they're on leave
  • arrange the employee's return to work

By law, while an employee is on statutory paternity leave their employer must tell them about any:

  • promotion or other job opportunities
  • redundancies
  • reorganisations that could affect their job
