It is important that employers understand the laws surrounding working families 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 employees with family responsibility.

Our specialist employment lawyers can help employers with all aspects of family friendly rights at work from drafting family friendly 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 0343 507 5151, 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 new 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 a sex or pregnancy related discrimination claim

How Can Gorvins Help?

For legal advice and guidance on any aspect of family friendly legislation, maternity leave, paternity leave or shared parental leave, contact the employment law team at Gorvins Solicitors on 0345 507 5151, e-mail employmentteam@gorvins.com or fill in our online enquiry form and we will be in touch.
