Final shared parental leave and pay regulations published and in force from 1 December 2014

28 November 2014 #Employment

The Shared Parental Leave Regulations 2014 (SI 2014/3050) and the Statutory Shared Parental Pay (General) Regulations 2014 (SI 2014/3051) have been made final this week. They both come into force on Monday 1 December 2014 in respect of children whose expected week of childbirth or placement for adoption is after 5 April 2015.

There appear to be no significant changes from the draft regulations.

The new system of shared parental leave raises many issues for employers. A good start point is to consider and put in place a shared parental leave policy. This is now available on Employmentbuddy here.
