#8 - Maternity + Paternity Leave in the UK
The United Kingdom offers progressive maternity and paternity paid leave to its citizens and workers. Female employees are granted up to 1 year of maternity leave. Employees on leave receive statutory Maternity Pay for up to 39 weeks.
For the first six weeks of maternity leave, female employees’ are guaranteed 90% of their average weekly earnings, before tax, as part of their maternity leave. These employees are then granted £139.58 per week for the following 33 weeks of their leave.
Partners are traditionally allowed 1 to 2 weeks of paid paternity leave.
If the mother wants to share her 52 weeks of maternity leave with her partner, she is able to do so under UK law. This allows her to return to work earlier without sacrificing the benefit of paid leave offered to her household.
The legal allotments of time for maternity/paternity leave are similar for those who choose to adopt.
#9 - Termination & Severance in the UK
Unlike in the U.S., the employer must give the employee notice before terminating their employment. There is statutory notice, which is federally mandated by law, and the period of notice initially disclosed in the original employment contract.
If not otherwise states, employer’s must provide one week’s notice for employees serving between 1 and 24 months of service, and then an additional week’s notice for each year from 2-12 years of service to the same company. The traditional practice in the UK is to provide one month’s notice for entry and mid level employees and as long as three months for more tenured employees. Employer’s also have the right to pay in lieu of granting their employee with prior notice of their dismissal, if stipulated in the employment contract.
The UK has set in place anti-discrimination laws that protect all employees from being terminated unfairly, with special considering payed to employees with more than two years of work with a single company.
GlobalPEO communicates directly with our clients to help expedite these processes and handle cases surrounding termination gracefully and with full compliance to UK business law.
