Food For Thought is our take on afternoon tea, an opportunity to feed our bellies and minds every Thursday here at Impact Hub Birmingham.

Should Shared Parental Leave apply to the self-employed?

This week’s conversation is hosted by researchers from the University of Birmingham, Dr Holly Burkett and Dr Sarah Forbes.

Holly and Sarah Forbes will be discussing Shared Parental Leave, a policy which was established in April 2015. They are keen to understand your views of this policy and the fact it does not apply to the self employed or agency workers. This article highlights some recent discussions of the policy from a self employment point of view.

Please come and share your views over cake in this interactive Food for Thought session followed by a 1-hour focus group* session with Holly and Sarah.
