Family Friendly Rights – business

Family Friendly Rights – business

It can be extremely difficult for employers to keep up with the ever expanding array of family friendly rights.  If you take a wrong turn, this can lead to complaints of sex discrimination, unfair dismissal and detriment claims.  We can help you understand your obligations and avoid unnecessary claims from your employees.

There are a large number of family friendly rights available to your employees, including:

  • Adoption leave and pay
  • Emergency leave for dependants
  • Flexible working
  • Maternity leave and pay
  • Parental leave/shared parental leave
  • Paternity leave and pay
