Maternity and family rights

Your employer has to give you certain maternity, paternity and adoption rights by law. In addition, they may offer extra rights in your employment contract.

We can advise you of your rights regarding maternity, paternity and shared parental leave (where you can flexibly share your combined paternity and maternity leave). Our lawyers can also help you make flexible working requests following the birth or adoption of your child (for both mothers and fathers).

We’ll guide you through this process, and can negotiate flexible working terms with your employer.

Discrimination & Harassment Claims

Sadly, many women and men still experience unfair treatment because they are starting a family, or have childcare commitments. Pregnancy is a protected characteristic under redundant.

Often a dispute can be resolved with your employer directly, following their own grievance procedures or via negotiation. However, if necessary, we will support you through the Employment Tribunal process.

We help mothers, fathers, guardians and adoptive parents with a range of employment law issues. Contact us here.
