Government seeking views on a new proposed carers leave

The Government is seeking views on a proposal to give employees a week of unpaid leave each year to provide care. The responses will be used to help understand:

  • how carers use existing employment rights

  • who should be eligible to take the leave

  • what the leave can be taken for

  • how the leave would be available to take and the process for taking the leave

  • the costs and benefits to employers and employees
