Civil servants to get enhanced shared parental pay equal to maternity pay.

24 October 2014 #Employment

The Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has announced plans to equalise parental leave and pay arrangements for members of the civil service. Female civil servants can currently take maternity leave at full pay, but partners would not receive full pay if they choose to take time off as shared parental leave with their partner.

From April 2015, civil servants taking shared parental leave will be entitled to enhanced shared parental pay, raising the bar for employers, certainly in the public sector. See our articles on shared parental leave here.
