Maternity & paternity

Juggling work and family life has never been easy – we’re here when you need help.

Your parental rights at work

You’re expecting a baby? Great news! But what if your employer isn’t as excited as you are?

If you need help resolving a maternity or paternity issue at work, talk to Tees. Whether you're concerned about your maternity/paternity pay, or your future career, our employment law specialists can help you assert your rights.

How we can help you

Juggling the demands of a busy family life whilst holding down a job has never been easy. If your employer is not as supportive as they might be when it comes to managing your work and family responsibilities, you’ll want to have someone on your side who can help to assert your rights. If you’re worried about your pay or your career advancement, or you feel you were unfairly selected for redundancy because of your family situation, we can help and advise you.

Our experienced team of employment lawyers are just the people to have on your side if you feel that you have been unfairly treated at work because of your family responsibilities.

Tailored support

When you come to us for help with family related rights at work, we’ll put you at the centre of everything we do. First, we’ll listen carefully to your story and get a thorough understanding of what’s happened. Then we’ll use our knowledge and experience of the law to advise you what your options are. If you want us to, we can talk to your employer for you. Hopefully it won’t go as far as legal action, but if it is necessary, we can look after that too. Whatever action we take, our aim will be to get the best outcome for you. We’re always happy to see you in person, but we’ll keep in touch by phone, email and letter – whatever works for you, so you only need to come to our office if you want to.

Friendly and approachable

We know that you might be worried about even talking to a solicitor about your employer. But you’ll find our employment lawyers friendly and easy to talk to. We’ll talk to you in plain English and we’ll answer any questions that you have. We’ll always advise you what we think your best course of action is and we’ll work quickly to resolve your issues with your employer.
