8 JULY 2014

In this briefing you will find:

  • A briefing document on the second reading of the 2014 Children and Families Bill in the House of Commons
  • Details on how the Fawcett Society supports the introduction of shared parental leave and paid time-off for fathers/partners to attend antenatal appointments
  • Concerns, such as the fact that ring fenced leave for fathers/partners has not been extended beyond the current provision of 2 weeks and that robust pay structures do not underpin the current or proposed leave system
