[United Kingdom] - Statutory Adoption Leave and Pay to Surrogacy Parents

The United Kingdom government looks like they have finally recognised the reality of surrogacy created families and are now allowing for adoption leave and pay for parents.  To find out more have a look at the "Modern Workplaces - Government Response on Flexible Parental Leave" paper.

Intended parents of a child born through a surrogacy arrangement who meet the criteria to apply for a Parental Order will be eligible for statutory adoption leave and pay if they meet the qualifying criteria; and for flexible parental leave and pay if they meet the qualifying criteria.  They will also be eligible for unpaid time off to attend two ante-natal appointments.
