This employment law guide explores the basics of shared parental leave and offers guidance on how to avoid common pitfalls.

Shared Parental Leave (ShPL) is a new leave system being introduced for parents with babies due to be born on or after 5th April 2015, or for children adopted on or after this date. ShPL aims to give parents flexibility as to when, and by whom, leave is taken after birth. These changes are most significant for mother’s partners, who have previously had heavy restrictions on when they can take leave.
