It is important that employers understand the laws surrounding working parents and how to retain highly skilled employees when they become parents, whilst at the same time balancing their business’ needs with the rights and needs of those employees who have family responsibilities.

Our specialist employment lawyers can help employers with all aspects of family friendly rights at work from drafting policies to dealing with the tricky mechanics of balancing the needs of employees with different family set-ups.

For further information about how our employment law team can advise you and your business about maternity leave, paternity leave and all aspects of family-friendly rights, contact us on 0161 930 5117, e-mail employmentteam@gorvins.com or fill in our online enquiry form.

Gorvins Approach to Family Friendly Rights

Employers must be aware of ‘family-friendly’ laws, including paternity leave, parental leave, adoption leave and flexible working.

You need to be familiar with this legislation if you want to avoid any successful claims and at Gorvins we ensure you are fully aware of what you need to do as an employer. We advise employer clients on:

  • bonus entitlement during maternity leave
  • how you should deal with an employee who needs time off because their child is sick
  • advice on flexible working requests
  • dealing with sickness or holiday entitlement of employees whilst they are on maternity leave
  • advice on paternity leave and shared parental leave
  • dealing with redundancies whilst employees are on maternity leave delicately so as to avoid sex or pregnancy-related discrimination claim
