Increase in Parental Leave – Effective March 2013

The UK will increase parental leave from 3 months to 4 months in March 2013. This leave remains unpaid and the change is required under the EU parental leave directive.

Parental leave is an entitlement for parents of young children to take time off work to look after a child or make arrangements for a child’s welfare. Please contact us if you have any queries on this matter.
