As an employer, how do I pay an employee who takes shared parental leave flexibly? When is salary payable?

Employers should continue to pay their employees according to the usual salary payment schedule.

There should be no difference in the salary payment to an employee who takes shared parental leave. The employer is not required to pay above the Government reimbursement cap of $2,500 a week, although he may voluntarily do so.
