Author: Stephen Simpson

NOTE: This guidance was based on the information available in January 2019, including the Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Act 2018 and the Government's response to its public consultation. See Parental bereavement leave: Eight key points to help HR prepare for up-to-date guidance, which takes account of the draft Parental Bereavement Leave Regulations 2020 and Statutory Parental Bereavement Pay (General) Regulations 2020, which were published in January 2020.
