Working parents have a number of legal rights they can use designed to make life easier for them. These include paid and unpaid maternity leave and paternity leave, the right to request to work flexible working hours, unpaid parental leave for parents of children under five (18 if your child is disabled) and unpaid time off to deal with unexpected problems with the care of dependants.

Our Employment Law Team can offer advice and support in understanding and using these rights to ensure that you make the most of what is available and do not suffer at the hands of discriminatory employers.

Speak to our specialist employment team to find out more about Maternity, Paternity or Parental leave or contact us for more information.
