Shared Parental Leave: Key Risks

The law offers certain protections to employees in relation to shared parental leave. You should be aware of specific duties, such as giving employees on shared parental leave priority for suitable alternative vacancies in a redundancy situation, and allowing employees returning from shared parental leave to return, in most cases, to the same job and, in all cases, on terms and conditions that are no less favourable. Here we highlight the key risks associated with managing shared parental leave, but detailed advice can be found throughout the Shared Parental Leave section.
