Time Off to Accompany a Pregnant Woman to Ante-Natal Appointments

From 1 October 2014 expectant fathers, or the partner of a pregnant woman, will be entitled to take unpaid time off work to attend antenatal appointments with their partner.

The Department of Business, Innovation and Skills has produced a guide for employers, which sets out a series of FAQs including who is entitled, how much time an employee can take off, and an employee’s right to redress if their request for time off is refused.
