Employment Law Bulletin April 2015

Tuesday 21 April 2015

Welcome

Time for some employment law changes – just in time for it all to be changed again after the election, judging by some of the campaigning.

The most headline-grabbing change is the new right for qualifying parents to take shared parental leave, which we trailed last month and so won’t bore you with now (but if you would like to hear more, do get in touch). There are other family-friendly provisions coming into force now too, including surrogate parents’ eligibility for leave and wider rights for adoptive and other parents.
