Maternity leave and maternity pay
Pregnancy loss charities have welcomed recent initiatives by some employers to offer paid time off to employees affected by miscarriage or stillbirth. One form of pregnancy loss that is rarely talked about, however, is termination for medical reasons. Jane Fisher takes us through the specific difficulties that can arise and how employers can help.
The Government is pressing ahead with plans to extend the period during which pregnant employees and new parents are entitled to be offered any suitable alternative vacancy if they are being made redundant. We look at how the law will change and the headaches that the amendments could cause for employers.
