Are working fathers discriminated against in shared parental leave?

A recent survey by PowWowNow revealed that 44% of fathers who had taken shared parental leave experienced some form of discrimination. It is therefore not surprising that only 1 in 10 fathers have taken shared parental leave since it was introduced in 2015.

Nicholas Le Riche, partner in BDB Pitmans’ employment team, discusses this within an article for DiversityQ. He explores the various types of parental leave for fathers and what steps employers can take to encourage them to take parental leave.
