Family Rights at Work

Working parents with family commitments are protected by a number of rights in the workplace.

How can we help?

The law governing this area is complicated and evolving and it is important that working parents know of their rights and responsibilities in relation to their work. We can advise working parents on important matters such as applications for flexible working and the need to take time off due to family related responsibilities.

We can advise you on a full range of family related issues at work including:

  • Adoption leave and pay
  • Health and safety at work for pregnant women
  • Maternity pay and benefits
  • Parental leave
  • Paternity leave and pay
  • Pregnancy and maternity discrimination
  • Shared parental leave
  • Time off for adoption and antenatal appointments
  • Time off for dependants
