Shared Parental Leaves in UK – 63% said they were either interested or very interested

Employee interest in shared parental leave (SPL) will be much higher than originally forecast UK buttonby the government, according to research by law firm Linklaters.

Linklaters surveyed 250 recent parents and parents-to-be working in FTSE 100 companies about SPL, which comes into force on 1 December 2014.

Almost two-thirds (63%) said they were either interested or very interested in taking up the new right. This is significantly higher than the government estimate of take-up, which is between 2% and 6%.

The research also found that take-up of SPL will be influenced by whether employers offer enhanced pay; 76% of those interested in SPL said entitlement to additional pay during the leave would be relevant to their decision.
