Shared parental leave and pay

Contact and work during parental leave


Your employee can work up to 20 days during SPL without bringing it to an end. These are called shared parental leave in touch (or SPLiT) days.

These days are in addition to the ten keeping in touch (or KIT) days already available to those on maternity or adoption leave.

SPLiT and KIT days are optional - both you and your employee must agree to them.
