Periods of shared parental leave should now be recorded within SuccessFactors and detailed guidance on how to do this is contained in the guide and via the various checklists listed below.

Please note that if you are the mother or primary adopter and you wish to exchange part of your maternity/adoption leave for Shared Parental Leave, you must end your Maternity/Adoption Leave in SuccessFactors and this must have been fully approved before you enter the details of your Shared Parental Leave request.
