ACAS has just published its guide to the forthcoming changes in parental leave which come in to force from 5th April 2015.

It gives advice on how employees can make requests and how employers can ensure they deal with requests fairly.

The new regulations will see couples being allowed to share maternity, paternity or adoption leave and pay. Employers will have to develop robust administrative systems to keep track of requests, particularly as the leave can be taken in blocks.

The guide can be found here: http://www.acas.org.uk/media/pdf/1/c/Shared-Parental-Leave-a-good-practice-guide-for-employers-and-employees.pdf

If you need help with developing your policies on shared parental leave or any other aspect of your employment procedures please contact one of our employment law team.
