Will Carer’s Leave Be Introduced?

Due Date



The government consultation took place from 16th March 2020 to 3rd August 2020. It gathered views on a proposal to give employees a week of unpaid leave each year to provide care. The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has now published the government response which confirms the intention to introduce ‘carer’s leave’ as a day one right for employees. Legislation will be brought forward when parliamentary time allows.
