Shared Parental Leave and Pay: New Guidance


<1 min

Posted on 14 Aug 2014

The Government has published guidance on shared parental leave and pay for both employers and employees. 

The guidance explains when an employee may be eligible and how to take up shared parental leave and pay. The employer's guide also sets out the record keeping duties. 

Disappointingly the guidance is extremely basic in nature at this stage.  

Shared parental leave and pay is available in respect of babies born or placed for adoption on or after 5 April 2015.
