Consultation on draft shared parental leave Regulations

Close date: 18 March 2014

The Government seeks views on three draft statutory instruments on the shared parental leave and pay system, through an informal consultation. Shared parental leave and pay is to be introduced for parents with children due on or after 5 April 2015 and adoptive parents where the child has been matched or placed for adoption on or after 5 April 2015. The draft Shared Parental Leave Regulations 2014 set out the qualification requirements for shared parental leave; the draft Maternity and Adoption Leave (Curtailment of Statutory Rights to Leave) Regulations 2014 specify the notice requirements and conditions around curtailment of maternity leave; and the draft Statutory Shared Parental Pay (General) Regulations 2014 set out the qualification requirements for shared parental pay.
