I'm a fixed-term contractor, temporary or part-time employee. Am I eligible for paternity leave?

Yes, as long as you meet all the eligibility criteria.

The leave you’re entitled to is based on the number of hours you work in a week.

If you’re a part-time employee working 20 hours a week, and you have been working for your employer for at least 3 months before your child’s birth, you’ll be eligible for 40 hours of paternity leave.
