We need your feedback on shared parental leave

Tick boxes

NHS Employers is urgently seeking information on how shared parental leave is working in NHS organisations.

The Women and Equalities Committee has launched an inquiry as new research reveals that many fathers do not feel supported in the workplace to care for their children. The committee want to know about the barriers that prevent men from sharing parental duties, from lack of workplace flexibility to attitudes toward fathers taking paternity leave, and how that affects the gender pay gap.

They are keen to explore the extent flexible working for both men and women - including job shares and working from home is enjoyed by fathers in the workplace. The information is key to addressing the gender pay gap, according to the committee, which is responsible for monitoring the performance of the government's Equalities Office.

NHS Employers has been asked to provide evidence to the Women and Equalities Committee on behalf of employers in the NHS. In order that we can present robust evidence we are asking you to complete a short survey. 

Access the survey to submit information on behalf of your organisation, the survey will take around 5 minutes to complete.

The closing date for responses is 11 April 2017.
