‘Jack’s Law’ | Parental bereavement leave to be rolled out in April

Parental bereavement leave to be rolled out in April

The UK is set to introduce ‘Jack’s Law’ – a new legal right entitling grieving parents to paid parental bereavement leave – which will come into effect in April this year.

The new legal right entitles working parents, who suffer the devastating loss of a child under the age of 18, to two weeks paid bereavement leave – something that isn’t currently an automatic right.
