Shared Parental Leave and Pay could start this month
13 November 2014
Members may wish to be reminded that the new entitlement of Shared Parental Leave (SPL) and Shared Parental Pay (ShPP) replaces Additional Paternity Leave and Pay for babies due on or after 5 April 2015. This means that for very premature births the new regime could come into effect within the next few weeks – except in Northern Ireland where the legislation has yet to be finalised.
Employers and their agents and bureaux should therefore check that software and internal payroll and HR processes are now ready to implement the new scheme before April should it be necessary to do so.
