Your Legal Obligations
WHAT DOES BEST PRACTICE LOOK LIKE?
The law in this area can often be confusing for both employees and employers.
Keeping those communication lines open but being confident you won’t say or do anything that could get you in to trouble can pay dividends in terms of staff-wellbeing, morale and retention.

Legal Obligations Workshop
6 hours, up to 15 people
In this workshop, we will run through what your legal obligations are and what best practice looks like when managing pregnant women, staff taking parental leave and returning to work after a period of leave.
This should build confidence for the future and reduce any risks of unhappy staff or, worse, a claim against your business.
We will cover
Legal obligations during recruitment
Legal obligations when a member of staff tells you they are pregnant
Best practice when managing a pregnant member of staff
Legal obligations and best practice during maternity or paternity leave
Legal obligations if a member of staff makes a flexible working request
Legal obligations when a parent returns to work
An overview of what would constitute discrimination in the eyes of the law
Your line managers will feel more confident having open conversations with pregnant women and parents in the workplace
Greater assurance that line managers are doing and saying the right thing thereby minimising risk of potential claims
Pregnant women and parents feeling as though they are being better supported and are therefore more likely to stay with the organisation
