planning parental leave

In the few weeks before leave, your leaver should firm up and start a formal handover plan. If they are working close to the due date of their baby they should aim to complete hand over early in anticipation of any last-minute changes. The detail of the plan will differ with the amount of leave being taken.

As a manager we advise you send them this checklist as a start point and use the bullet points to structure a practical conversation between you both.
