  • if you can get maternity, paternity or shared parental leave
  • how much pay you can get if you take leave

Shared parental leave and pay are only available in England, Scotland and Wales.

Before you start

You’ll need to know:

  • your employment status (eg employed or worker)
  • the date you started your current job
  • the date you finished work (if you’ve finished)
  • how much you earn
  • when you want your leave to start
  • how much leave you want to take

You’ll need the same information about your partner if you plan to share the care of the child with them.
