Parental leave

Employees with a minimum of one year’s service have the right to unpaid time off to look after children (up to the age of 18) that they have parental responsibility for.  

For information on maternity, paternity and adoption leave, click here 

Shared parental leave (SPL) and statutory shared parental leave (ShPP) are designed to give parents more flexibility if they are expecting a baby or adopting a child. Visit our guidance on shared parental leave for more information.
