Paid leave for bereaved parents to become law

September 28, 2018   //   No Comments

A guaranteed right to bereavement leave and pay for parents who lose a child is expected to come into force in 2010, according to ministers. The legislation, which has already been through the Commons, recently won the support of the Lords.

The new rights will give an entitlement to employed parents to take at least two weeks’ paid leave following the loss of a child under 18, irrespective of their length of service.
