Labour supported proposal for parental bereavement leave from inception – Rebecca Long Bailey

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, responding to the announcement on ‘Jack’s Law’ being adopted allowing parents who lose a child under the age of 18 to get two weeks’ statutory leave, said:

“Labour has supported the proposal for parental bereavement leave from its inception, and we welcome this announcement. As set out in our Workers’ Rights Manifesto, Labour is calling for bereavement leave for those who have lost a close family member.”
