Family friendly rights: Expert employment solicitors

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 (COVID-19) and the associated impacts on childcare provision.
