Shared Parental Leave

Eligible parents of children who are due to be born or placed for adoption on or after 5 April 2015 can opt into the Shared Parental Leave and Pay system.

Additional Paternity Leave will be replaced by the new arrangements from 5 April 2015.  After this date, eligible staff will continue to be able to take Maternity Leave, Ordinary Paternity Leave, Adoption Leave and Parental Leave.

The University’s non-contractual Shared Parental Leave Policy and Procedure provide information on rights and entitlements for staff wishing to take Shared Parental Leave.

We also run maternity and shared parental leave workshops regularly for those who want to learn more about their entitlements (which can be booked via the Leicester Learning Institute).

Please see the links below for further information about Shared Parental Leave, including all the forms you will need to make an application.
