Introduction for Newsletter 24.06.09Wednesday, June 24th, 2009
This week from Europe comes the prospect of improvements to the existing right to parental leave, a lesser-used family benefit that provides up to 3 months leave to care for a child up to six years of age. There is no statutory entitlement to payment during the leave and, for this reason, take up is likely very low. A new Directive may prompt a longer period of entitlement, but still no payment requirement.
A new feature this week is the inclusion of a payroll calendar for Ireland.
