It’s not long to go until the new shared parental leave regime comes into force on 1 December 2014. Have you:
- prepared a shared parental leave policy and style notices for employees to use?
- amended your existing family leave polices?
- decided whether to extend any maternity enhancements to employees on shared parental leave?
- checked to see if your pension scheme documentation needs amended?
Shared parental leave applies to children due to be born or placed for adoption on or after 5 April 2015.
