Information for partners of employees taking Shared Parental Leave
Taking part will involve a 30-minute telephone interview with a researcher from NatCen, at a time that is convenient for you.
We will ask you about your decision-making process around taking up Shared Parental Leave, your experiences of family leave-taking and return to work.
The discussions will be confidential and only your partner and members of the NatCen research team will know you have taken part. We will not tell BEIS or anyone else who has taken part.
Why have I been selected to take part?
Your partner’s workplace has been selected as a case study for our research. Your partner has agreed to be interviewed by us to share their experiences and motivations to take up Shared Parental Leave and Pay. As we are interested in exploring the wider impact of the policy, we would like to know your views as well.
What will I receive for taking part?
As a token of our appreciation for your time, we will be offering you a £15 voucher.
