The long awaited Acas guidance ‘Shared Parental Leave: a good practice guide for employers and employees’ Shared Parental Leave: a good practice guide for employers and employees’ was published yesterday. The guidance is published only days after a further blockbuster of seven sets of draft Regulations on this subject. It is expected that the final set of draft regulations will be put before Parliament on 6 November 2014.
Shared Parental Leave is in force from 1 December 2014. HR Managers can expect to receive applications from January 2015 and queries from employees any time now.
To find out more about the new and complex Shared Parental Leave regime and how it will affect you as an employer, come along to our Employment Law Seminar on Wednesday 22 October 2014 at the Holiday Inn, Victoria Way, Woking GU21 8EW, starting at 5:30pm.
