ACAS has issued guidance on the new shared parental leave arrangements coming into force in December 2014 for babies due on or after 5th April 2015 where the parents meet the eligibility criteria.
The guidance is comprehensive and covers best practice as well as some template letters and policies for employers to use. As always bespoke policies are recommended but the guidance and templates should give employers a better understanding of their obligations and the employee’s rights.
