Bereavement Leave – progress

Posted on September 17, 2018

The Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Act 2018 has now received Royal Assent.  This provides a right to two weeks of time away from work to those employees who lose a child under 18.  The detail has yet to be confirmed.  Supporting regulations to deal with the finer detail, including pay arrangements, are expected by early 2020 when the legislation will take effect.
