Employment Law Update – Support for Parents with Premature or Sick Babies

Acas has recently published a very helpful advice and guidance note in relation to workplace support for parents with premature or sick babies.  This can be accessed at www.acas.org.uk.

Employers in such situations often find it difficult to know how best to deal with parents in a sensitive way.  The ACAS advice encourages them:Acas

  • To be compassionate and sensitive in all communications
  • To ask parents what they would like them to tell their colleagues about their situation
  • Make employees aware of their statutory entitlement to leave including, for example, shared parental leave; and
  • To be flexible in allowing time off when parents return to work for follow up appointments or treatment

We are able to provide advice to employers and parents facing what can be a difficult and anxious time.  If we can be of help, please contact Partner, Geoff Lamb at our office.

    I have used North Ainley for a number of years. They have successfully dealt with my parent's wills and more recently the sale of 2 properties. The staff are exceptional and imparticular Cassie who took care of the whole process from start to finish whilst I was overseas. She diligently chased all third parties and kept me informed at all times. I would recommend North Ainley as they have proved themselves time and again over the last 10 years in all of my family's legal affairs.read more
