Shared Parental Leave & Shared Parental Pay

Shared Parental Leave became available to parents of children due to be born or placed for adoption on or after 5 April 2015 and Shared Parental Pay came into force alongside the SPL provisions. Employers should be prepared to receive applications for SPL, if they have not already. SPP is paid at the statutory rate, which has increased to £139.58 per week, as have the rates for Statutory maternity, paternity and adoption pay
