From maternity and paternity leave and pay issues, to parental leave, adoption rights and flexible working requests, shared parental leave and pay available to eligible working parents during the first year of birth, adoption or surrogacy, we have one of the most experienced teams in the UK for this type of issue.

Danielle Ayres, our specialist family friendly rights solicitor is known nationally for her work in helping employees who are experiencing issues at work get the right support whatever their issue. Contact Danielle on 0345 507 5151,  or fill in our online form and we will call you straight back.

Different Family Friendly Rights

Each employee situation is different and we represent a variety of individuals. The Equality Act 2010 and associated Regulations can be complex and we strive to tailor our advice, while always being clear and breaking down any jargon.

There are rights and protections embedded in the law and your contract to ensure that you are safeguarded. These include:

  • Maternity leave and pay
  • Paternity leave and pay
  • Rights to flexible working
  • Adoption and parental leave
  • Part-time working
  • Time off for dependants

If you feel as if your family friendly rights have been brought into question then it is essential you seek expert legal advice.

Maternity rights will often arise on a return to work and/or when a redundancy situation occurs at around the time of pregnancy/maternity leave. In these situations, those who are pregnant or on maternity leave are afforded additional protection and we will be able to guide you through this process, during a time which we realise will be sensitive and difficult. There can also sometimes be concerns regarding pay before, during or after maternity leave – e.g. relating to annual leave accrual or other benefits – and we can provide you with practical advice on that.

With shared parental leave in force from April 2015, there are even more family friendly rights to be aware of. If you are planning to make a request for this type of leave, we will be happy to assist you through that process.
