No 98 The Shared Parental Leave and Paternity and Adoption Leave (Adoptions from Overseas) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2015

These come into operation on 5/4/15. The Regulations modify the Maternity and Adoption Leave (Curtailment of Statutory Rights to Leave) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2015 and the Shared Parental Leave Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2015 so that each appropriately reflects entitlement to shared parental leave for qualifying individuals adopting from overseas and the different triggers and qualification points which exist in these cases.

They also amend the Paternity and Adoption Leave (Adoption from Overseas) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2003 to mirror, in respect of overseas adoptions, the amendments made to the Paternity and Adoption Leave Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2002, in relation to births and adoptions in Northern Ireland, by the Paternity and Adoption Leave (Amendment) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2015.
