Q. What are the Adoptive Leave Entitlements?

One parent of an adopting couple or a parent who is adopting alone has the right to a minimum period of 24 consecutive weeks’ adoptive leave beginning on the day of placement of the child.

You must give written notification to your employer of your intention to take adoptive leave as soon as is reasonably practicable but not later than 4 weeks before the expected placement of the child.  If the day of placement is postponed the leave may be postponed until the new day of placement.
