Shared Parental leave and the importance of a policy
A quick reminder that with the introduction of the Shared Parental Leave rules, it is vital that employers have an up to date policy dealing with the rights.
The reason this is so important is that there are very strict criteria that must be met if an employee’s request is to be “valid”. If these are not met exactly, then the employer may lose the ability to claim back the shared parental leave pay from the government and this may not be a trivial sum.
Those clients on the Arcturus retainer service will receive a policy free of charge and this will be sent out shortly.
