LEAVE AND PAY FOR MOTHERS
The TUC have reissued their booklet on “Leave and pay for mothers”. It can be downloaded here: https://www.tuc.org.uk/sites/default/files/TUC%20KYR_Maternity_LO%20spreads.pdf
Besides going through the statutory basics on maternity leave and pay, and shared parental leave, the booklet also provides information on other rights including:
- unpaid parental leave
- requesting flexible working
- emergency time off for dependants.
There is a separate booklet on workplace rights when adopting a child or having a child through surrogacy: https://www.tuc.org.uk/sites/default/files/KYR_Surrogacy.pdf
I would be grateful if you could bring this circular to the attention of all members.
