Maternity leave and maternity pay
Vicki Robinson, deputy director at the Miscarriage Association, and Jo Broadbent, counsel knowledge lawyer at Hogan Lovells, discuss how to support employees affected by miscarriage or stillbirth.
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 discuss common scenarios during maternity leave, and how to deal with them.
Jo Broadbent, counsel knowledge lawyer at law firm Hogan Lovells, discusses the legal framework protecting pregnant employees and the health and safety considerations employers should be aware of.
Special guest Jo Broadbent, who is a professional support lawyer with Hogan Lovells, joins us to discuss the rights that apply to pregnant employees and those on maternity leave in a redundancy situation, including the practical steps employers can take to avoid falling foul of the law.
