It is important for employers to provide the correct amount of leave and payments for employees, by ensuring that they work to the latest statutory requirements. We have developed this information sheet to update you with the latest facts and figures at a glance, which is ideal for displaying in your office and referring to when required.

It highlights the latest information including working time allowances, national minimum wage, statutory sick pay, redundancy pay, compensation limits, family friendly payment periods and reminder of the minimum notice provisions provided for in the burgundy and green books.

Our fact sheet includes the following details.

Family friendly leave in education, including:

  • Statutory maternity leave
  • Statutory paternity leave
  • Statutory adoption leave
  • Parental leave
  • Time off for dependants
  • Shared parental leave
  • Statutory parental bereavement leave

Family friendly payments in education, including:

  • Statutory maternity pay (basic and higher)
  • Statutory paternity pay
  • Maternity allowance
  • Statutory parental bereavement pay

  • Statutory adoption pay (basic and higher)

Education sector sick pay, including

National minimum wage, statutory redundancy pay, minimum notice periods, maximum average working time, and the minimum amount of leave and rest time are listed.

In the event of claims being brought by employees or former employees, there are also maximum compensation awards that employers may have to pay. Our fact sheet provides a matrix for these amounts in an easy-to-read table, along with the related figures for redundancy-related compensation.

Claims brought against an organisation are also subject to qualified periods of continuous employment, and time limits for the employee to bring the claim. These are also detailed in our fact sheet.

This leaflet is updated and redistributed annually, ensuring that you always have the most up-to-date information.
