Essential guidance for employers and HR staff when dealing with family friendly rights in the workplace
In an attempt to give individuals an opportunity to have a better work/life balance, the government has made significant changes in respect of flexible working, parental rights and family-friendly provisions in recent years. This has resulted in numerous options now being available to employees who have children and other caring responsibilities.
Unfortunately, many employers have struggled to keep up with these changes and do not have the knowledge or confidence required to deal with issues relating to family friendly rights.
According to a report published by LinkedIn in March 2019, 37% of the 4,000 UK workers surveyed unaware of what support their workplace provides for new parents. Similarly, over 1/3 of those asked did not feel that their employer did not do enough to support new parents.
