Carer’s Leave Act 2023 (6 April 2024)

The Carer’s Leave Act will create a new statutory leave entitlement that grants up to one week of unpaid carer’s leave per year, to employees who are caring for a dependant with a long-term care need. The leave will be able to be taken from half a day up to and including one whole week of leave.

The statutory entitlement will be a day one right for employees, and individuals will not be required to provide evidence or explain how the leave will be used.

This will enable carers to better balance their caring and work responsibilities, supporting them to remain in employment.
