1st October 2014 extends new rights to UK fathers/ mothers’ partners to attend Ante Natal appointments

Time off for ante-natal appointments: extended to fathers/mothers' partners with effect from 1 October 2014. Fathers/mothers' partners, including agency workers, will be given a new right to take unpaid time off work, of up to a maximum of 6.5 hours each occasion, to attend up to two ante-natal appointments (there will be no service requirement for this, although agency workers must have fulfilled the 12 week qualification period)

A guide for employers and employees available at www.dti.gov.uk/workingparents.
