Shared Parental Leave

If you are a business owner or employer, any employees who are mothers, fathers, partners and adopters are entitled to Shared Parental Leave (SPL).

Shared Parental Leave is designed to give parents more flexibility in how to share the care of their child in the first year following birth or adoption.

As an employer you will want to ensure you are looking after your employees throughout their career. By ensuring you are providing SPL to eligible parents you can maintain you positive and fair working environment.

If your employees are requesting SPL, you need to know if they are eligible and what amount of SPL they are entitled to.

A knowledgeable solicitor who can guide you through the process will be essential. Our experienced team will help you identify what SPL your employees are entitled to and ensure you are compliant with your legal obligations.

With the introduction of Shared Parental Leave in 2015, maternity legislation has now become more complex. Your business needs to ensure it is compliant with these changes.

With help from our expert team you can ensure you and your business are:

• Giving shared parental leave to eligible parents only
• Giving the correct amount of shared parental leave
• Compliant with legislation
• Maintaining employee satisfaction through ethical practice

Employment law can be confusing. With help from an expert solicitor, you will have the ease of mind that you are compliant with current legislation. We will take care of all your SPL queries and requests, giving you more time to focus on your core business functions.

There are other family friendly rights, including paternity leave, parental leave, adoption leave and the right to request flexible working. If you require advice on any of these matters, please telephone Albert Bargery on 01296 318500.
