The objective is to help parents to balance the gender division of parental leave, support women's economic empowerment and close the gender pay gap.

The government’s white paper on a future post-Brexit immigration policy looks set to have a dramatic impact on employers, especially low-skilled ones if they are implemented. What would the impact of a 30k minimum salary threshold be on your organisation? Join us on 12 August in Manchester with Gerwyn Davies CIPD Public Policy Adviser to discuss.
Parental leave policies need to better reflect the changing nature of modern families and progress gender equality at work. Greater employer provision of flexible working is essential to help families balance caring responsibilities within and beyond a child’s first year. By thinking more creatively about the types of flexible working they can offer, and ensuring it's available at all levels of seniority, employers are more likely to hold on to talented people who can progress their careers with the organisation.
The CIPD's public policy engagement involves both engaging with ministers and other policy-makers and drawing on the knowledge and expertise within our 150,000-strong membership to inform our views to government.
Retaining workers’ rights post-Brexit is being marked as a continuation of the Good Work Plan, which aims to provide an upgrade to workers’ rights, including day-one statements setting out entitlements and pay, and ending the legal loophole that allows organisations to pay agency workers less than permanent staff.
