Employee Letter Requesting Change of Paternity Leave Dates

Paternity leave is important, but it can only last for one or two consecutive weeks, so it’s important that you get the date and planning right. There may come a time where, despite your best-laid plans, you need to alter something about the date or length of time you have submitted to your employer for your paternity leave.

You can use this letter if you have made a request to your employer for Statutory Paternity Leave but now wish for whatever reason to change the dates or duration of this leave. It sets out your case clearly and simply so that your employer will understand the reasons for your request.

Because we want to make the law easy-to-access and transparent, there’s no complicated legal jargon – all you need to do is download this letter and enter your details where indicated by red placeholder text. It really couldn’t be simpler.
