Shared parental leave: 4 key questions answered
In my article in Personnel Today I look at four of the key questions on shared parental leave:
Will both parents be able to take shared parental leave at the same time?
What discretion will I have to refuse requests for shared parental leave?
Should I offer enhanced shared parental pay?
What should I be doing now to prepare?
More information on the new right to shared parental leave, available to parents of children with an expected week of childbirth (or who are placed for adoption) on or after 5 April 2015, can be found in our blog post last month.
