Employment Law Update – Parental Bereavement Leave & Pay

With effect from 6th April 2020, new legislation providing up to two weeks’ leave will take place in relation to this sensitive area.  Many employers will already offer support in the event that an employee loses a child, but employers should become familiar with the eligibility and criteria surrounding parental bereavement leave and pay as this provides a framework for rights in difficult circumstances.  If you need assistance in drafting a policy on the new rights for bereaved parents, please contact us.
