Starting 5 April, eligible employees in the UK will be able to take Shared Parental Leave and Pay. This new right is a radical overhaul of the existing family friendly rights in the UK and will allow couples to share up to 52 weeks’ leave and 39 weeks’ pay (less any period of compulsory maternity leave). Employers will face a number of new administrative and financial challenges to accommodate this new right and will need to be well-prepared to minimise the disruption and risk to their businesses. Please join lawyers from our Labour and Employment Practice for a one-hour webinar to discuss the new UK law on Shared Parental Leave and Pay and what it means for employers.

Topics will include:

  • How the new legislation will impact employers
  • The impact that this new right will have on the existing family friendly rights
  • Practical steps employers should take to minimise the risk of disruption and any related employment claims
