Parents to share childcare leave

Nick Clegg has announced that the government has committed to introducing a year of shared parental leave by April 2015. Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg’s changes will allow the currently given 52 weeks of leave to be divided up between the parents (apart from the first 2 weeks, set aside for the mother’s recovery post birth).

Mr Clegg added: “There shouldn’t be a one-size-fits-all approach; that’s not how families are set up. Many businesses already recognise how productive and motivated employees are when they’re given the opportunity to work flexibly, helping them retain talent and boost their competitive edge.

“This is good for families, good for business and good for our economy.”
