Change date of commencement of paternity leave in case of severely premature birth
When having an extremely premature birth, the current timeframe for fathers to complete paternity leave is restrictive. The 8 week limit to complete leave would potentially mean a father would have to return to work whilst their baby(s) are still in hospital.
A simple amendment to allow fathers to adjust the leave from either the date of birth OR due date could free fathers restrictions to spend time with family when their children come home.
