Consultation: Parental Leave Regulations

  • Posted

The government is consulting on the draft Shared Parental Leave Regulations, which will allow parents to share the leave after birth of a baby in pretty much whatever proportions they choose.

Here is the best advice I can give:  DO NOT READ THEM.  The draft Regulations consist of 29 pages of migraine-inducing drafting, and are supplemented by two other sets of Regulations.

Since there is no way in a million years that I'm going to read them - at least, not before I really, really have to - the easiest thing to do is link to a blog by Richard Fox of Kingsley Napley which outlines the changes.
