Three quarters of mothers believe they have had a negative and possibly discriminatory experience during pregnancy, maternity leave or after their return from maternity leave. Are their suspicions founded?
Unfortunately, yes. Research has shown nearly one in three UK bosses admit they have (or would) reject women job applicants because they “might start a family soon”. Even more shockingly, 15 per cent of bosses admitted that they had deliberately broken sex and pregnancy discrimination laws.
To help support our clients, White Horse Employment have teamed up with Philip McCabe, Principal Solicitor at McCabe and Co Employment Solicitors to offer a FREE* briefing to discuss how employers can protect their business and reputations and provide you with an invaluable opportunity to have your questions answered by an expert with a wealth of employment law experience.
This informal and informative briefing is for anyone who has to manage staff and will give you the up-to-date knowledge and tools to keep you on the right side of the law.
Thursday 18th October 2018,
9.30am to 11.30am, Registration: 9:00am, Cumberwell Park, Bradford-on-Avon
There has been a massive growth in claims and referrals to ACAS from women who believe they have been discriminated against because they are pregnant or have taken maternity leave. It is easy for an employer to fall foul of the law and for an avoidable mistake to escalate into a dispute or expensive Employment Tribunal claim.
As such the briefing includes:
- Health and safety for pregnant or breastfeeding mothers
- Maternity leave entitlement and pay
- Sickness absence
- Mishandling redundancy situations
- “Keeping In Touch” days
- Returning to work
- An overview of paternity and shared parental leave
- What not to say to pregnant women!
