Webinar: Statutory carer's leave - how employers can prepare


Are you prepared for the new legal right to carer's leave? This takes on added significance from 6 April 2024, when carers in England, Wales and Scotland will be entitled to request carer's leave from day one of their employment.

To help HR professionals prepare, XpertHR editors Stephen Simpson and Zeba Sayed guide you through how this new type of statutory leave will operate in practice and the impact it will have on how employers support carers. Stephen and Zeba explain:

  • who is eligible for carer's leave;
  • how much carer's leave eligible employees can take; and
  • what process employers must put in place for employees to request carer's leave.

This 60-minute webinar includes a Q&A session
