Parent's leave

Overview

The Parent’s Leave and Benefit Act 2019 is part of the government’s "First Five" strategy, which aims to support young families during the first five years of a child’s life.  

The Parent’s Leave and Benefit Act 2019 allows employees with infant children to take up to 2 weeks' paid parent’s leave. This new paid parent’s leave must be taken in a two-week block or in two one-week blocks within the first year of the child's birth or adoption.
