Shared Parental Leave: Are you prepared?

New regulations on Shared Parental Leave are coming into effect, allowing parents the option to share the mother’s maternity leave.

The new rules apply to couples with babies due, or children matched or placed for adoption on or after 5 April 2015.

Under the new rules, mothers will still take at least two weeks of maternity leave immediately after birth, but after that working couples have the opportunity to share up to 50 weeks of leave and up to 37 weeks of pay.
