What are the regulations relating to me returning to work so that my partner can take additional paternity leave?

 A partner cannot commence additional paternity leave until the member of staff has returned to work, it may then commence at 20 or more weeks after the child’s birth, or placement, in the case of adoption.

Further details can be found in the College’s Paternity/Maternity Support Leave policy, although it should be noted that this policy applies to College staff only and that members of staff whose partners are not employed by Imperial College should consult their own employer for information and guidance.
