Shared Parental Pay (ShPP) and Shared Parental Leave (SPL) for babies born or due after 5th April

Allows working mothers the option to end their maternity pay and leave early (after 2 weeks of birth (or placement for adoption)) and to share untaken leave and pay with their partner, to enable partners to take a greater role in caring for the child.

Shared Parental Leave can be stopped and started, and parents can be off at the same time.  Parents must give their employers 8 weeks notice of their SPL plans.  And all ShPP and SPL must be taken before the childs 1st birthday.
