Pregnancy, Maternity & Rights for Carers

Employers have a legal obligation to keep abreast of the latest laws and entitlements for people with children or those with other caring obligations. There is now a raft of family-friendly legislation, dealing with rights ranging from maternity, paternity and adoption leave to the right to a flexible working request. (This is a request for a variation in the terms and conditions of your contract to accommodate child and other caring obligations).
If you have suffered discrimination in your employment because of your caring responsibilities; or if you have been made redundant or dismissed for a reason relating to maternity leave, pregnancy, paternity leave or parental leave; then your dismissal is unfair and you should seek legal advice. Lawmatch can recommend a number of solicitors with specialist knowledge in this area with whom you can have a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
