TUC calls for overhaul of shared parental leave

In 2017/18, only 1% of new parents eligible to take shared parental leave used it. This is due to the scheme being so low paid making it unaffordable for fathers, according to TUC.

They argue that by increasing statutory paternity pay and shared parental pay to at least minimum wage levels. And increasing the current statutory paternity leave period (two weeks), and extending the leave to all fathers could benefit almost 500,000 dads.
