Technical guidance on shared parental leave and pay

18 September 2014

A technical guidance document on shared parental leave has been published by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).

This document is described as a more specialised and detailed version of the guidance issued previously, and BIS see it as particularly relevant to HR departments and lawyers.

BIS have also confirmed that further guidance materials on the package of legislative changes, including the extension of adoption leave and pay to intended parents in surrogacy arrangements, and prospective adopters in fostering for adoption arrangements, will be published in due course.
