    Lewis Silkin’s EMEA Club has joined forces with the CIPD’s HR Leaders Network. What is your biggest bugbear when employing staff internationally?

    Shared parental leave - Cardiff

    Date: 9 Oct 2014 Location: Lewis Silkin LLP
    Start: 9:30am Cost: Free
    Finish: 12:30pm
    CPD Points: 3

    Long in the pipeline, a new, flexible scheme for parental leave and pay will finally come into effect in April 2015. Mothers and their partners will be able to share a year’s leave and 37 weeks’ statutory pay, but the rules are riddled with complexity. Our workshop will explain the way the system is designed to work and how employers will need to change their policies and procedures. We’ll cover in practical terms how to iron out the problem areas and explore how far employers may be at risk in continuing to pay enhanced maternity pay while not enhancing pay for shared parental leave.
