The Department for Business, Energy, Innovation and Skills (BEIS) has launched a new online tool which will make it easier for expectant parents to check eligibility for Shared Parental Pay (ShPP) and Leave and help them understand how the scheme works.

The online tool will enable working parents to check eligibility in just 5 minutes, check what pay they will be entitled to and to use the tool to notify their employer.

ShPP provides working parents with up to 50 weeks parental leave and 37 weeks of pay in the first year of a child’s life. Where the working parents are adopting a child, then the leave and pay must be taken within a year of placement.
