Variation to a Period of Shared Parental Leave (UK) Mobile App
Parents requesting a variation to a period of Shared Parental Leave can apply with the Variation to a Period of Shared Parental Leave (UK) app.
How does it work?
It must be submitted at least eight weeks before either the original start date, or the new start date, of the period of Shared Parental Leave, whichever is the earliest. Instead of typical maternity leave, paternity leave, adoption leave, or shared parental leave, parents may need to design a flexible working plan that works for their household. This app can help. The app requires users to apply for a plan that follows these guidelines: must take place within the first year of the child’s life, must take place after the first two weeks of compulsory maternity/adoption leave, must last at least one week, must be taken in blocks of complete weeks, may start on any day of the week, and may be taken as a continuous or discontinuous period. Parents can fill out the app and it submit it to their employer for review.
