Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy consultation: Carers’ leave

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (DBEIS) are consulting on a proposal to give unpaid carers the right to a week of unpaid leave each year to provide care. This is an open consultation, and closes on 3 August 2020.

Responses to the consultation will help inform the Department on:

  • how carers use existing employment rights
  • who should be eligible to take the leave
  • what the leave can be taken for
  • how the leave would be available to take and the process for taking the leave
  • the costs and benefits to employers and employees.
