Guidance on Shared Parental Leave

The Children and Families Act 2014 (CFA 2014) introduces a new entitlement for employees who are parents, to take shared parental leave (SPL) in the first year of their child’s life or in the first year after their child’s placement for adoption.

This guidance considers the scheme for SPL that is available in respect of children whose expected week of childbirth (EWC) begins on or after 5 April 2015 or who are placed for adoption on or after that date.
