This booklet covers the basic (sometimes called statutory) rights that employers must provide to qualifying adoptive parents who work for them. Your employer may offer better rights than the legal minimum and you need to check your contract of employment or your staff handbook to find out what your entitlement with your current employer is. If you work for an organisation that recognises a trade union, you are more likely to have better than the legal minimum rights, as unions have pushed for things like higher contractual pay during adoption leave.
