The article reports on the Work and Families Act 2006 in Great Britain which would give fathers 26 weeks' additional paternity leave (APE) on top of the existing two weeks' paid leave. The legislation allows employees the option of transferring statutory maternity or adoption pay to fathers or partners, provided the first parent has returned to work and still has paid leave outstanding. A consultation paper has been issued by the government on how it could work in practice.
