Ineligibility for Statutory Paternity Pay

Letter Informing an Employee of Ineligibility for Statutory Paternity Pay

EMP.PAT.52

This Letter Informing an Employee of Ineligibility for Statutory Paternity Pay should be used to inform an employee whose average weekly earnings are insufficient for statutory paternity pay entitlement that he or she is ineligible to be paid during statutory paternity leave. This letter assumes that the employee is eligible for statutory paternity leave.  

In order for an employee to be eligible for statutory paternity pay, an employee must have average weekly earnings that are equal to, or more than, the lower earnings limit for National Insurance Contributions. If the employee has average weekly earnings below this limit, he or he will not qualify for statutory paternity pay.

If the employer fails to grant an eligible employee paternity leave or statutory paternity pay, this will give the employee the right to bring proceedings against the employer in an employment tribunal.
