Consultation on paid volunteer leave

Consultation not yet launched

The Government will consult on proposals to introduce three days of paid volunteer leave. It plans to require employers in large private and public sector organisations with 250 or more employees to provide employees with the opportunity to take three days of paid volunteer leave per year from 2018. The Working Time Regulations 1998 (SI 1998/1833) will be amended to include the new right.

The Government plans to consult on the details of paid volunteer leave in 2017.
