Maternity & Family Rights

The law relating to family friendly rights has come a long way in recent years. Employees and workers are now entitled to rely upon a wide range of rights aimed at providing a better work life balance.

As well as enhanced rights and benefits available for mothers and fathers by way of shared parental leave, there are also rights available to take parental leave and the right to request flexible working. There is also a right to take time off work to care for dependants in the event of an emergency.

At Glaisyers, members of our employment team are able to advise you upon which rights are available to you and what procedures you must follow if you wish to exercise your rights to the various options open to you. We’ll also advise you on the steps you can take if your request is unreasonably refused or if you believe you have been treated unfairly by your employer as a result of your request.

Call our Employment team on 0161 832 4666, who will be happy to talk things through with you or complete the online enquiry form and one of our team will get in touch for a no obligation chat.
