Time off for adoption appointments

For those of you who are in the process of adopting, or thinking about adopting, and working, it is worth noting that from 5 April 2015, employees and certain agency workers who are proposing to adopt a child or children, either on their own or jointly with another person, have the right to take time off during working hours to attend adoption appointments (sections 57ZJ-57ZS, Employment Rights Act 1996).
