Shared parental leave

04 June 2014

Workplace Law report that a joint research survey carried out by My Family Care and Hogan Lovells discovered that only 15% of employers have a clear idea of how they will implement the new provision for staff who are parents. Some noted a lack of certainty around pay under shared parental leave.

The research also found that the biggest concern is currently around the amount of internal administrative changes the legislation will create, while a number of those companies questioned also revealed anxieties over managing resources in periods of leave and communicating these changes to staff.
