New right to shared parental leave in 2015 (SPL)

The Government are introducing a new shared parental leave and pay system for children born, or matched / adopted, on 5th April 2015 or after; in England, Scotland and Wales and we look at all the details of this complicated legislation in our article here.

This new Shared Parental Leave (SPL) system is to allow both parents and adopters more flexibility in how they care for their child during the first year after birth / adoption. In January 2015 the Government published an ‘online calculator’ so you can work out what maternity, paternity or shared parental pay you may be entitled to – which you can see here.

Eligible mothers and fathers will be able to share up to 50 weeks’ leave (52 weeks less 2 weeks compulsory maternity leave) to care for their child – less the period that the mother has spent on maternity/adoption leave; and share up to 37 weeks’ shared parental pay (39 weeks less 2 weeks compulsory maternity/adoption pay) – less the pay period the mother has taken.
