A new right for fathers to take two weeks' paid paternity leave comes into force next April - a landmark in the Government's continuing family-friendly reforms. It is really not far away - many male employees whose partners are currently pregnant will be counting on claiming their entitlement when the baby arrives. Details have yet to be finalised, but fathers will probably have the option of taking leave either in one block or as two separate one-week periods within eight weeks of the birth. Crucially, they will be entitled to take paternity leave on top of their right to (unpaid) parental leave under existing legislation. With improved maternity rights and statutory adoption leave also coming into force next spring, there will be no shortage of parent traps for employers. Unless you start to plan ahead now, you could end up - alongside prospective mums and dads - suffering more than a few sleepless nights.
