Shared Parental Leave And Pay

The shared parental leave and pay rules offer working parents far greater choices as to how they share the care of their child and take time off work during the first year of their child’s life.

Under the rules, mothers must take at least two compulsory weeks of maternity leave immediately after birth, but after that period, working couples can share up to 50 weeks of shared parental leave and up to 37 weeks of statutory shared parental pay.

New parents can choose to be at home together or go to work at different times and share the care of their child during the important first year after birth.
