Family Friendly Rights
There is now a wealth of legislation intended to enable employees to have a better work/life balance, and this is constantly evolving. The most common areas are:
- Maternity leave and pay
- Paternity leave and pay
- Adoption leave and pay
- Parental leave
- Flexible working requests
- Time off for dependants
- Discrimination linked to any of the above
Warners’ employment lawyers regularly advise on all of the above issues, and we can advise you on what your rights are in relation to these areas.
Where you need more than advice, and perhaps need to challenge a decision of your employer, we can use our experience to ensure that a good relationship is maintained throughout. We appreciate the fact that employees can feel awkward in challenging their employer in these areas, and will work with you to ensure that your complaint is voiced through the appropriate channels, without jeopardising your relationship with your employer.
