Reforms to parental leave and flexible working, 16/05/11 [W/E/NI/S]

The UK Government is looking to increase flexibility for working parents and their employers.

Under the proposals, once the early weeks of maternity and paternity leave have ended, parents will be able to share the overall leave allowance between them. Unlike the current system this leave could be taken in a number of different blocks and both parents could take leave at the same time.

More information is available on the Home Office website.
