    Leave can’t be postponed (delayed) if: the employer doesn’t have a ‘significant reason’ - eg it would cause serious disruption to the business it’s being taken by the father or partner immediately after the birth or adoption of a child it means an employee would no longer qualify for parental leave - eg postponing it until after the child’s 5th birthday If it’s postponed, the employer: must write explaining why within 7 days of the original request suggest a new start date - this must be within 6 months of the requested start date can’t change the amount of leave being requested
