Family friendly rights at work

Tees provides guidance on every aspect of family friendly rights at work. We also provide guidance on complaints and grievances, disability and equal opportunities policies and procedures that may apply. We help businesses ensure their employment policies are up-to-date with legal requirements, and procedures are in place so that any requests or issues are handled correctly. If you don't have proper, updated policies and procedures your business could be at risk of costly legal claims. It's vital that you are aware of your obligations to your employees.

Our advice on family friendly rights covers a range of issues including: 

  • maternity leave
  • paternity leave 
  • parental leave, including shared parental leave
  • flexible working rights (including applications and how to manage these)
  • carer’s rights
  • homeworking due to Coronavirus and the associated impacts on childcare provision.

As a flexible and technologically-adept firm, we already had many home-working systems in place. We have now rolled this technology out to all our employees working for clients, so they can continue to work normally - and from home.

If you are a client, please be assured you can get in touch with Tees and we are still working on your case. To replace face-to-face meetings, we have the facilities to do video-conferencing, conference calls or just speak on the phone, as you need.

Due to the circumstances, please call us if you would have wanted a home visit, and we can organise the best and safest way of being in touch.
