The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy are seeking views on proposals to better support parents to balance work and family-life.
The consultation on parental leave and pay ends on 29 November 2019. This section sets out high level options for reforming existing entitlements which could help parents to balance the gender division of parental leave.
The consultation on neonatal leave and pay ends on 11 October 2019. This section looks at proposals for a new leave and pay entitlement for parents of babies that require neonatal care after birth.
The consultation on transparency of flexible working and family related leave and pay policies ends on 11 October 2019. This section looks at whether employers should have a duty to consider if a job can be done flexibly and make that clear when advertising a role. It also considers options for requiring large employers (those with 250 or more employees) to publish their family related leave and pay and flexible working policies.
