Use this workflow when you have an employee who is a new mother or breastfeeding.
Employers have specific risk assessment duties in relation to employees who are new mothers or breastfeeding. To ensure that such an employee is not exposed to a risk to her health or that of her baby, the employer may have to alter her duties, offer suitable alternative employment or suspend her.
This workflow is an example of a legally compliant process. Where your organisation's own procedures go beyond the procedure set out in this workflow, you should follow these.
