New Ante-Natal Rights 1 October 2014

New Ante-Natal Rights just around the corner!
As from 1 October 2014, fathers/partners may take unpaid time off to accompany a pregant woman on up to two ante-natal appointments.
Employees will be eligible to take advantage of the new right straight away without accruing a minimum period of service.  This right also extends to agency workers, although a minimum service requirement applies to trigger eligibility.
Looking for assitance with this or the wider issue of the introduction of shared parental leave in April 2015?
