Rights for working parents and carers

Making sure you respect employees' rights is essential to help you minimise disputes and the risk of legal claims. You must know where you stand if an employee becomes pregnant or responsible for a child.

As well as understanding maternity and paternity rights, you need to be aware of the extra leave entitlements that parents and carers have.
