Does anyone know where I can find out about this? A friend of mine went back to work on a four day week and it's something to do with the days she is entitled to because she has a baby??? Obviously she has a drop in salary but just curious. Also another girl I work with works the 5 days but takes 6 weeks off during summer instead - Think it's the same thing thay are taking but not sure what it's called. thanks!

It's parental leave and it depends on the company how you can take it, either a day per week or in a block of weeks etc. Check on your protal if you have one or contact your HR and they will be able to advise.

You are entitled to 14 weeks in total until your child reaches 8 years of age i think.
