Working grandparents will be entitled to shared parental leave and pay

2015-10-29 chris posted:

The Chancellor George Osborne, has announced that he will extend shared parental leave and pay to working grandparents. The new system will help support working families, as the government recognises the crucial role grandparents play in providing childcare. Evidence suggests that nearly 2 million grandparents have given up work, reduced their hours or taken time off to help cut down childcare costs.

The Prime Minister, David Cameron, had previously indicated that he was happy to consider the Labour party's suggestion to give working grandparents up to 18 transferable weeks of shared parental leave.

The government intends to bring legislation into force by 2018.
