It consists of 26 weeks' ordinary adoption leave (OAL) and 26 weeks' additional adoption leave (AAL). An employee may qualify for statutory adoption pay, depending on salary and length of service. Only one adoptive parent per couple may take statutory adoption leave (the other parent may take statutory paternity leave).
