Maternity and paternity - or parental leave - entitlements are a complicated area where the law has changed frequently in recent years.

As it currently stands, pregnant employees, new mothers and adoptive parents - and the partners of these employees - are entitled to statutory time off around the birth and adoption of their child.

Depending on how long they have worked for you and their personal circumstances, employees can legally take up to between 26 and 52 weeks off in maternity and paternity leave.
