DH and I are currently trying to work out what leave he will be entitled to once children are placed with us. I'm aware that there's plenty of info on t'internet, but I'm finding it hard to navigate so wondered if anyone could help?
DH is in FT employment Mon-Fri, no (paid) overtime etc and is definitely eligible for leave (been with his employer a few years). I am not employed and therefore not taking leave from anywhere, and will be the children's primary carer. Am I right in thinking that DH is entitled to the standard adoption leave of 6 weeks paid at 90% and a further 33 weeks at the statutory rate?
Is this affected at all by a) the fact that I am not employed or b) that fact that I am the primary adopter on the paperwork?
Also, if anyone knows of a number to call where I can get this confirmed that would be really helpful - we'd like to have all the facts before speaking to DH's boss!
