Introduction - Parents Leave

The Parent’s Leave and Benefit Act 2019 has been amended by the Family Leave and Miscellaneous Provisions Act 2021 which came into effect on 1 April 2021. It provides for five weeks statutory leave for a relevant parent within the first two years of a child’s life, or in the case of adoption, within two years of the placement of the child with the family. Parent’s leave is available to each parent.
Prior to the introduction of the 2021 Act, parents leave allowed for only two weeks
