Parental Rights Certification
Many workers will, at some point, need time off work to welcome a new baby into their family. In the UK, Maternity, Adoption, Paternity and Shared Parental Leave (SPL) bestow parental rights upon workers. All businesses need to have a working understanding of relevant employment laws to ensure that all employees are treated fairly.

In this course, you will learn what a worker is entitled to receive in terms of paid and unpaid leave, and how their employment rights are subject to protection while they are away from the workplace.
You Will Learn:

Who is entitled to Statutory Maternity Leave (SML), Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP) and Maternity Allowance (MA)
Special cases whereby different rules may apply with regards to the provision of SML and SMP, such as mariners and directors
Who is entitled to Statutory Paternity Leave and Statutory Paternity Pay (SPP)
Who is entitled to Shared Parental Leave (SPL) and Shared Parental Pay (ShPP), and how the allowances are calculated
The rights of workers who are away from the workplace on parental leave, and the rights of workers to take unplanned, unpaid leave to care for their dependents
