Maternity provision and return to work: the IRS survey

Author: Sarah Silcox

IRS research examines the maternity provision and return to work arrangements following maternity leave, including flexible working and re-induction, of 179 organisations.

Key points

  • Our survey found that six months was the most common minimum amount of maternity leave taken, and very few employers reported women returning after less than three months' leave.
