The Nottingham Contemporary is one of Nottingham’s most iconic spaces, and one of the UK’s largest contemporary art centres. We welcome you to this inspirational space to not only learn about the new Shared Parental Leave legislation, but also to enjoy a buffet lunch and view the collections within its four galleries.

Employers are now bracing themselves for requests for the new right to Shared Parental Leave as the concept is about to become reality.

The Shared Parental Leave regulations came into force on 1st December 2014 and will apply to employees whose children are born on or after 5th April 2015.

These Regulations make significant changes to the existing maternity and paternity regimes and are far from straightforward. You need to understand what new rights have been created by the Regulations, how to deal with requests for leave and how to deal with such requests fairly.

To assist you to understand this complicated area, we are running a series of shared parental leave workshops to provide you with the tools and confidence to respond to requests and issues within the new regime.

Our interactive workshop will cover the following;

  • To whom the new regime applies.
  • How to deal with requests for shared parental leave.
  • How and when shared parental leave can be taken.
  • Responding to requests.
  • Refusing requests.
  • Practical issues.

You will also be provided with a Shared Parental Leave Policy to take away with you.
