Parental leave is when eligible employees can take unpaid parental leave to look after their child’s welfare, eg to:
- Spend more time with their children
- Look at new schools
- Settle children into new childcare arrangements
- Spend more time with family - eg visiting grandparents
Their employment rights (like the right to pay, holidays and returning to a job) are protected during parental leave.
