Free Breakfast Seminar – Family Friendly Rights
Thu 23 March 2017, 08:00 – 10:00 GMT
We are delighted to invite you to our free Family Friendly Rights breakfast event.
The law and practice relating to maternity and parental rights and family friendly provisions has undergone significant change over the last few years. There is comprehensive legislation governing maternity, adoption, paternity and shared parental leave and pay. This session aims to debunk the myths and provide clear guidance. We will consider the following:
- The legal framework
- Entitlement to pay and other benefits for those on statutory leave
- Top tips for preparing policies
- Tricky issues such as “Keeping-in-Touch” days, time off for dependents and redundancy during maternity leave
You will also have the opportunity to ask questions, clarify any areas of uncertainty and discuss what you can do to prepare. You will also have the opportunity to network with fellow professionals.
The session will be delivered by expert employment and equality lawyers from Collingwood Legal - an award winning employment law firm, recognised as a Top Tier employment law firm by the UK Legal 500, based in Newcastle upon Tyne.
