Q. Am I entitled to time off for Ante-natal Classes & Medical Appointments


You have the right to time off from work without loss of pay for the purpose of attending one set of ante-natal classes (other than the last 3 classes in such a set) and those classes may be attended by her during one or more pregnancies.

Expectant fathers/partners also have a once-off entitlement to paid time off to attend the last 2 ante-natal classes immediately prior to the birth. 

At least two weeks' written notice must be given before the first class of dates/times of classes, or where all are not known, two weeks' before each class.

You have the right to time off without loss of pay for ante-natal and post-natal medical care appointments.

At least two weeks written notice must be given in advance of visits and proof must be produced if requested.
