  • Policy—shared parental leave (birth)

    1. 1

      Introduction

      1. 1.1

        The right to shared parental leave allows eligible employees to choose how to share the care of a child during the first year after its birth.

      1. 1.2

        The right is available to up to two eligible employees, namely:

        1. 1.2.1

          the mother of the child; and

        1. 1.2.2

          a second person, who must be the father of child, or married to, or the civil partner of, or the partner of, that mother.

      1. 1.3

        It may be that only one of these two eligible persons is employed by the Company. Alternatively, it may be that both are employed by the Company.

      1. 1.4

        This policy[ has been agreed in consultation with [the trade union OR staff association OR employees] and] applies to all employees. The aspects of this policy relating to shared parental pay (paragraphs 5 and 6, the relevant parts of paragraphs 7, 8 and 11, and paragraph 14) also apply to certain persons who are not employees of the Company but are in ‘employed earner’s employment’ with the Company: broadly speaking, this means persons working for the Company in a capacity in relation to which class 1 National Insurance Contributions must be paid[ (this would include most qualifying agency workers)]. There are certain exceptions; if you are unclear as to whether you fall into this category, please contact [insert person to contact and how to contact that person]. No
