Once a period of SPL has been granted, any variation or cancellation of the leave will count as one of the employee’s three permitted applications.

Where possible, eight weeks’ notice must be given of any variation or cancellation to a period of granted SPL using a CHRIS75c. Should eight weeks’ notice not be possible the Head of Institution/Institution Administrator is under no obligation to agree to the change, but could still consider the request and determine whether it is reasonably practical to grant it.

However, a change that is as a result of a child being born early, or as a result of the Institution requesting it be changed, and the employee being agreeable to the change, will not count as a further application.
