Parenthood in its various guises can present a number of challenges for both employees and the employer

Rhian Radia, Partner and Head of the Employment team at Bishop and Sewell.

From maternity and paternity rights, shared parental leave and the rights of surrogate and adoptive parents, to the responsibilities faced by employers, there are many issues that, without the right approach, can cause problems in the workplace – and in the home.

Rhian Radia, Partner and Head of the Employment team at solicitors Bishop & Sewell and Marianne Johnson, Trainee Solicitor, discussed the journey of the pregnant employee, from the moment an employer is notified, to the point of return to work.

The seminar which was held on Tuesday 24th May was aimed at business owners, directors and HR teams as well as new and prospective parents, and considered as well as discussed, a range of topics including:

  • The journey of the pregnant employee
  • Maternity and paternity rights
  • Parental leave
  • Flexible working
  • How leaders and HR professionals can support families in today’s commercial landscape
