Parental bereavement leave and pay consultation: government response

Fri, 02 Nov 2018

In response to a consultation on parental leave and pay regulations, the Government has taken the following decisions: the policy will use a broad definition of a "bereaved parent"; parental bereavement leave and pay can be taken as a single block, or as two separate weeks; employed parents will have a window of 56 weeks to use the entitlement; notice requirements will be flexible and will distinguish between leave taken very soon and leave taken at a later period; and evidence requirements will mirror existing requirements used for other family leave and pay rights, where it is practicable to do so.
