In this webinar:

  • Current state of family rights and benefits across the UK.
  • The rationale for reform proposals.

    • Shared Parental Leave
    • Maternity and Paternity eligibility
    • Job security during family-related leave
    • Flexible working

“These types of proposals and reforms have very much come out of problem areas identified or potentially exacerbated by the pandemic in the last 12 months.”

In this webinar from the Employment Team, Senior Associate Yannick Ramsamy & Solicitor Adam McGlynn looked at the current state of the family-friendly rights and benefits that currently exist for parents, and the proposed reforms put forward by Maternity Action.
