Consultation on Carer's Leave
A Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy consultation seeks comments on giving unpaid carers a new right to a week of unpaid leave each year to provide care. Responses will help understand: how carers use existing employment rights; who should be eligible to take the leave; what the leave can be taken for; how the leave would be available to take and the process for taking the leave; and the costs and benefits to employers and employees.
