Shared Parental Leave
This week the Government launched a new campaign ‘Share the joy’ to encourage more parents to take up the offer of Shared Parental Leave.
Around 285,000 couples qualify every year for Shared Parental Leave, but the take up is as little as 2%.
This campaign was launched days after the government set out its ‘Good Work Plan’ and is part of the government’s commitment to raise awareness of employment rights.
It has also launched a new website to provide further information and guidance for employers and parents.
We have supplied a basic Shared Parental Leave policy which can be downloaded here and adapted for your own organisation. However, if you would like more comprehensive tailored policies to meet your specific requirements, please get in touch and we would be delighted to discuss your requirements.
