Parental leave & paid time off

Dear recruiters! I´m new to the game and I wanted to ask, what are the laws concerning parental leave? How much paid time off am I expected to give for maternity/paternity leaves?

Hey GeorgiaMay, sorry for the late response. There are new rules introduced regarding Paternity pay this year (2022) Paternity pay and leave: Leave - GOV.UK
& maternity leave: Maternity pay and leave - GOV.UK

Hey GeorgiaMay12, I just read an article on this topic. Mainly you need to know this: under the ERA, UK employees have a statutory right to up to 4 weeks of parental leave each year. If you want to know more, I advise you to read this article. Best of luck

The paternity leave entitlement for new dads In the UK is up to two consecutive weeks. At least this is how we handle it in our company. Now, it all depends on how long you’ve been working in your job.
