    Help with Shared Parental Leave 12th Feb 18 at 11:32 PM
    Hello everybody

    My wife she is pregnant and the due date is for 22/04

    If she take off 39 weeks (maternity leave/pay) can we have the Shared parental leave for the remaining 13 weeks and get paid by ShPP?

    If we want to stay at home with our baby for those 13weeks we can stay at the same time or one of us needs to be at work?

    Thanks

    Have a look here:

    My understanding is that you don't get paid anything for the last 13 weeks no matter who stays at home. Either one of you works and the other stays home with baby for 13 weeks or you both stay home for 6.5 weeks.

    The last 13 weeks is unpaid.

    My DH took the last 4 weeks of the paid bit upto week 39.

    No, I am not perfect, but yes I do judge people on their use of basic English language. If you didn't know the above, then learn it! (If English is your second language, then you are forgiven!)

    It is possible. You will get the equivalent of one person getting smp for four weeks, in other words only one will get paid. or both of you will get paid but only for two weeks.

    The point of shared parental leave is that one parent gives up their portion of leave so that the other can take it up. Your wife might be able to take some that time off by using up a few weeks of annual leave, but you won't be able to have both your wife claiming statutory maternity pay and you claiming paternity pay.
