The Shared Parental Leave (SPL) and Shared Parental Pay (ShPP) arrangements detailed in this section apply to eligible parents who are expecting a baby due on or after 5 April 2015, and to parents who have a child placed with them for adoption on or after that date.

Shared Parental Leave (SPL) regulations came into force on 1 December 2014 applying to eligible parents (mother, father, adopter, partner, civil partner) of babies, due, or children placed for adoption, on or after 5 April 2015. The legislation provides both parents with the opportunity to consider the best arrangements to care for their child during the child’s first year and incorporates Shared Parental Pay (ShPP) arrangements.
