Shared parental leave is not a simple scheme which is why we have set up this site to make it easier to understand and apply.


The aim of this site is to provide you with detailed information and top practical tips about whether you are entitled to SPL, how best to use your rights and how to determine what options are best for you and your family.

You may also want to visit other parts of the website for employees where there are FAQs and detailed factsheets aimed at employees.  They apply as much to you as they do to your employees.

We welcome feedback and if you have any questions you can email them to us.
