Final call: The CIPP’s carer’s leave survey

22 July 2020

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has launched a consultation which considers the potential of providing unpaid carers with a new right to a week of unpaid leave in which to provide care. The CIPP’s Policy & Research team has created a survey which asks for the views of you – the payroll professionals, in order to feed into our written response.

The survey will take approximately 14 minutes to complete and will close at 23:45 on 24 July 2020. We appreciate that, now, more than ever, payroll professionals are extremely busy individuals but if you could spare the time to complete the survey, this is the perfect opportunity for you to have your say.

The survey asks for feedback and opinions on the proposal to give employees a week of unpaid leave each year in order to provide care, and the consultation aims to understand:

  • How carers use existing employment rights
  • Who should be eligible to take the leave
  • What the leave can be taken for
  • How the leave would be available to take and the process behind taking the leave
  • The costs and benefits to both employers and employees

Don’t delay, and respond to the survey today.
