Aspects Of The Parental Bereavement Bill


The Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Bill began life as a Private Members' Bill in July 2017. The Bill is being supported by the Government and is now wending its way through Parliament.


The aim of the Bill is to give parents who are employed and have suffered the death of a child under 18 the right to two weeks' Bereavement Leave in order to give them time to grieve. Employees with 26 weeks' continuous service will also be entitled to Bereavement Pay.


The Government has published a consultation document seeking views on options for regulations to fulfil certain provisions contained in the Bill, specifically on: 


- the definition of 'bereaved parent';

- how and when two weeks of Bereavement Leave and Pay can be taken; and

- the notice and evidence required to take Bereavement Leave and Pay
