Parents' bereavement leave right to begin in April
Parents who suffer the loss of a child will be entitled to two weeks' paid bereavement leave under new legislation coming into force in April. Business Secretary Andrea Leadsom announced the operative date for the new right under the Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Act 2018. The Act is known as Jack's Law, in memory of Jack Herd, whose mother Lucy has been campaigning for reform since he drowned aged 23 months in 2010. Jack's father's employers allowed him just three days' leave at the time.Link to article
