A briefing gives the Fawcett Society's analysis and critique of government proposals for shared parental leave and flexible working. The general principles are supported, but specific criticisms are made on the lack of minima for leave for the non-birthing partner; the adequacy of statutory pay; access to parental leave for self-employed partners; pregnancy discrimination; weaknesses in the right to request flexible working; and the potential danger of the assumption of shared parenthood following a separation in cases of abuse.
