PARENTAL LEAVE FOR JUNIOR DOCTORS


The British Medical Association BMA has described as a real advance in workplace equality an agreement enabling junior doctors who take shared parental leave to access enhanced pay rates.

Since 1 April 2019, shared parental pay in England has been enhanced to the same levels as occupational maternity and adoption pay.

In addition, junior doctors with rotational training contracts are now eligible for the equivalent to statutory pay for maternity, adoption and shared parental leave.
