We offer enhanced paternity pay of 2 weeks at full pay.
Shared Parental Leave (SPL)
If a father or co-parent is eligible for SPL, we offer enhanced pay of 20 weeks at full pay (inclusive of any paid maternity, adoption or paternity leave which is also taken). Paid leave may be taken at any time within the first 52 weeks of the child's birth and may be taken in a single or multiple blocks. Our policy applies regardless of any enhanced pay being taken by a co-parent (whether that co-parent is employed by the firm or by another employer). Since its launch, a number of employees have taken up our generous shared parental leave policy.
A total of up 18 weeks of unpaid leave can be taken by employees for each child up until the child's 18th birthday.
Our enhanced pay policies have a minimum qualifying period which matches the minimum qualifying period for statutory pay. In the case of enhanced maternity and SPL pay, we operate a claw-back provision if an employee does not return to work or leaves the firm within 12 months.
