Occupational shared parental leave scenario guidance

18 / 09 / 2019

The guidance shows various scenarios illustrating how occupational shared parental leave and pay should work in a number of situations under section 15 (England & Wales) of the NHS terms and conditions of service.

The scenarios cover:

  • How leave could be shared
  • How the statutory element of pay works
  • How the occupational element of pay works.

In all cases, staff should make an informed choice to ensure their application for shared parental leave and pay best meets their individual family circumstances.

These scenarios should help you as an employer guide your staff to the best possible outcome for them.
