Good afternoon all,
We currently offer enhanced paternity at full pay for 2 weeks, and 50% pay for 2 weeks. An employee has requested that he takes 3 weeks full pay instead for his upcoming paternity leave.
I don't have a problem with this in theory - realising that we may be setting a precedent for the future - but that is the 'pot' of money we have allocated so to speak so if they want to use it in this manner I'm not against it.
Are there any pitfalls I'm not taking into consideration?
Thank you in advance for your help!
