Fathers and the workplace: First Report of Session 2017-19 (HC Paper No.358)
A Women and Equalities Committee report calls on the Government to reform workplace policies to ensure they meet the needs of the 21st century family and better support working fathers in caring for their children. Some of its recommendations include: that statutory paternity pay should be paid at 90% of the father's pay to help ensure that all fathers, regardless of income, can be at home around the time of their child's birth; and that the costs and benefits of introducing a new policy of 12 weeks' standalone fathers' leave in the child's first year should be considered as an alternative to shared parental leave.Link to Page
