Maternity, Pregnancy and Parental Rights

Pregnancy and childbirth is an exciting time but it can be stressful when an issue arises at work. We can advise you on your parental rights, entitlements and options and assist you in the event of a dispute or if you feel you are being treated differently or unfairly.

If you would like to work more flexibly to help you juggle your home and work responsibilities we can advise you on how to make a flexible working request, what to expect and what you can do if you don’t get the answer you had hoped for, particularly where there is little or no explanation or reason.

If you would like a confidential chat to see how we can help you, please contact us.
