Welcome to our page on shared parental leave for employees


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 how to manage your employees’ entitlement to leave and pay in a way which is good for you and for them. There are advantages for both.

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.
