Social Welfare (Consolidated Contributions and Insurability) (Amendment) (No. 1) (Paternity Benefit) Regulations 2016 (S.I. No. 443 of 2016)

 

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation.)

The Paternity Leave and Benefit Act 2016 provides for 2 weeks of paternity leave and an associated social welfare benefit. Part 5 of that Act amends the Social Welfare Consolidation Act 2005 to provide for the new social welfare payment to be known as paternity benefit.

These Regulations, which come into effect from 1 September 2016, provide for a number of consequential amendments to the Social Welfare (Consolidated Contributions and Insurability) Regulations 1996 (S.I. No. 312 of 1996) to make reference to the new scheme.

In addition, the Regulations provide for a number of miscellaneous amendments to update references to existing schemes.
