There has been a renewed emphasis on home/work balance and family-friendly rights since the pandemic forced many workers into a hybrid or remote working environment. Employers are quickly finding that they have to update their policies and conform to the new way of working. The government has seized on this momentum and has pushed through some new family-friendly Bills, which all received Royal Assent in spring and summer this year.
In this first podcast in the ‘Talking Employment Law’ series, Lucy Densham Brown and Rebecca Dowle, members of the employment team at Clarkslegal summarise some of the big new family-friendly Bills that are working their way through parliament, including:
- Flexible Working Requests
- Carer’s Leave
- Neonatal Care Leave
- Enhanced Maternity Redundancy Protection
If you have any questions at all about any of these changes, please contact our employment team who would be happy to help.
