Podcast: Common issues during maternity leave
Issues that can arise during maternity leave range from the mundane, such as keeping lines of communication open, to the dramatic, such as putting an employee at risk of redundancy. We are joined by principal employment law editor Stephen Simpson to discuss common scenarios during maternity leave, and how to deal with them.
We also explain: which terms and conditions of employment continue during maternity leave; when maternity leave might be curtailed; and matters to discuss with the employee before she returns.
In addition, we also look at the legal position in a number of specific scenarios, including pay rises during maternity leave and an employee becoming pregnant again while on maternity leave.
