Parental leave consultation launched
Prime Minister Theresa May has launched a consultation calling for views on changes to parental leave entitlements to ensure they reflect modern society and the desire to share childcare more equally.
It asks questions on whether statutory paternity leave for fathers and same sex partners should be changed and for suggestions on ways in which the shared parental leave policy introduced in 2015 could be improved.
It also sets out how the Government is looking to introduce a new neonatal leave and pay entitlement, for parents of premature and sick babies who need to spend a prolonged period in neonatal care following birth.
