Event description

Description

The future of 'Family-Friendly'


  • Do you feel that the current provisions for parental leave and pay give working parents the choice and flexibility they need to combine work with family life?

  • How can we enable more women to combine having a family with pursuing their career and support more men to play a more significant part in childcare?


The government have set out proposals to reform the existing parental leave and pay entitlements as part of the open consultation on Good Work. The objective is to help parents to balance the gender division of parental leave, support women's economic empowerment and close the gender pay gap. We recognise that, as HR practitioners, you will have valuable experience of the many factors and variables associated with supporting working parents. We want to hear your experiences and insights to inform the CIPD's response to this government consultation.


The CIPD Manchester Public Policy Panel is delighted to welcome Claire McCartney, Resourcing and Inclusion Policy Adviser at CIPD, to lead this round table discussion and James Pike, Senior Associate at Squire Patton Boggs, who will deliver a legal update on family-friendly legislation, including the expectations for the Parental Bereavement Act and other relevant legislation that may be on the horizon. Bring your views, your questions and your concerns to share under the Chatham House Rule.
