Parental leave


Practical advice on parental leave

Whether you’re a business owner, an expectant parent or someone looking to adopt, we can provide practical advice on how the new changes to parental leave have an impact on you.

From 5th April 2015, the law regarding parental leave is changing. Parents and adopters will now have the option to choose how to share their parental leave and pay.

At Giles Wilson, we can advise couples on how the new changes apply to your situation, safeguard your rights with regards to your current employment status and ensure that you are treated fairly by your employer.

As local specialists in fertility law, we can also advise on how new changes also coming into effect from 5th April 2015 – that grant legal rights to couples becoming parents to a child born through a surrogacy agreement – affect you.

And because parental leave can also be a tricky issue for employers, our team can offer guidance to business owners on how to best deal with requests for parental leave, as well as clarifying your duty and rights.
