Children with their hands in the air taking part in a group activity.

The aim of this resource is to provide you with the minimum statutory entitlements for employees regarding maternity, paternity, adoption and parental leave.

The first half of the resource focusses on maternity, paternity and adoption, including clear guidance on leave, pay and allowances.

The second half of the resource focusses on shared parental leave - enabling parents to choose how to share the care of their child during the first year of birth or adoption.

Additional entitlements to those outlined in this resource may be offered at the discretion of the employer.

This guide provides important information for all employers.
