Parental leave entitlements increase effective March 2013

Unpaid parental leave increases from 13 to 18 weeks for qualifying parents with children under 5 years old from 8 March 2013.

The change comes as the UK must implement European law that was due to take effect from 8 March 2012. The UK was granted an additional year to implement the increase.

Where organisations' parental leave policies refer to this entitlement, these may require updating.

For further guidance, see the annual leave & time off section of HRBird.
