SPL for Managers

The University is committed to equality of choice for all employees and the Shared Parental Leave (SPL) Policy enables greater choice for parents on how to use their leave following the birth of a baby or the placement of a child. This policy is part of our wider family friendly policies in supporting a positive approach to enabling employees who are working parents to balance work and family commitments.

This section summaries:

  • Legislation under the provision of SPL
  • Rights of the employee under the SPL Policy
  • Roles and responsibilities of the manager before SPL, during SPL and returning to work following SPL
  • Manager guides
  • Flow charts and scenarios
  • FAQs
  • Quick Guides
  • What to do in special circumstances
