Shared Parental Leave - what you need to know
Following on from my updates towards the end of 2014 regarding shared parental leave, here is what employers need to know moving forward.
The shared parental leave regulations came into force at the start of December and although we won't see parents taking actual leave until next spring, employers may now start receiving notifications from parents wishing to use this right.

Amid all of this, there are several key factors employers should consider as they implement the changes.
