Maternity leave to be shared18th January 2011
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has unveiled proposals to allow couples to share maternity leave.
The new scheme will let a father take up any remaining unpaid leave if their partner goes back to work early. Also in the proposals, he said the government would be looking at plans to extend the right to ask for flexible hours to grandparents and close family friends. The government is set to consult on the updated system of shared parental leave to be introduced in 2015.
