Shared Parental Leave Extension

Shared Parental Leave Extension

On 5th October the Chancellor announced that he will extend shared parental leave and pay to working grandparents by 2018.  As approximately two million grandparents have either given up a job, reduced their hours or taken time off work to look after their grandchildren, the move will allow them to share leave with their children instead, keeping thousands more in the workplace.

Although a step forward for working parents, it will undoubtedly impact on those employers who have only recently enhanced shared parental pay on the same basis as maternity pay.
