Parents will be able to share parental leave from April 2015
Parents can split leave in blocks and will be able to change their mind about when leave is taken.
From April 2015, the government says that parents will be able to share parental leave. A year ago the government announced plans for parents to be able to share leave. Now it’s decided how these plans will work (you can read the government response to the consultation). Parents will be able to split parental leave in blocks and won’t have to take it as one go.
