The Government is seeking views on options for regulations to fulfil certain provisions contained in the Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Bill which is currently being considered in Parliament. The Bill provides eligible parents with a statutory right to take a minimum of 2 weeks of paid Parental Bereavement Leave within a period of at least 56 days (8 weeks), beginning with the date of the death of a child. BEIS are consulting on key issues which will help to shape the policy on Parental Bereavement Leave and Pay, to ensure that the policy is right both for those who seek to rely on it and those who have to administer it. It focuses on: the definition of a bereaved parent, how and when to take the leave and notice and evidence requirements.
