Leave Policies

University Of Glasgow Holidays


1.1 The University is committed to supporting employees to understand the choices available to them when planning for the birth or adoption of a child. Families now have additional options open to them with regards to managing time off during the first year after their child’s birth or adoption and this policy should be read in conjunction with the University’s policies on Maternity Leave or Adoption Leave as well as Shared Parental Leave to ensure that employees are fully aware of all of the options available to them and their family.

1.2 The University provides an Enhanced Paternity Leave Scheme, which exceeds the statutory provision, to eligible employees. Employees who are not eligible for the enhanced scheme may qualify for the Statutory Paternity Leave Scheme. The University also provides a Childcare Voucher Scheme to assist employees with childcare costs and the University Nursery provides childcare at subsidised rates depending on eligibility and availability.

1.3 This policy sets out all entitlements and associated processes that apply to the available paternity leave and pay schemes.
