Parental Bereavement Bill progresses through Parliament

The Parental Bereavement (Leave and Pay) Bill has taken the final step towards becoming law. The third reading - the final chance for the Lords to change the Bill - took place on 24 July and no amendments were made.

As both houses have agreed on the text of the bill it now waits for the final stage of Royal Assent when the bill will become an Act of Parliament. A date for Royal Assent has yet to be set.

The bill proposes introducing a minimum of two weeks' leave for employees whose child has died. This will include parents whose baby is stillborn.
