Adoption Leave Policy
Report of Lucy Hohnen, Interim HR Manager.
The Interim Head of Human Resources presented the report which sought to bring the pay entitlements of the Adoption Leave Policy into line with the Maternity Leave Policy. There were no other changes to the policy. She noted that there had only been one claim for Adoption Leave in the last seven years.
Mr Williams (as Chairman of the Local Joint Consultative Committee) said that the LJCC had supported the recommendation and the report had been well received.
RESOLVED to approve the introduction of an additional Occupational Adoption Pay provision to mirror the Occupational Maternity Pay provision of 90% of a week’s pay for week 1-6 and 50% of a week’s pay for week 7-18 (plus statutory adoption pay).
