Midlands PowerHour - Women in the Workplace and General Case Law Update
In our July PowerHour, we explore 3 topical HR issues concerning (i) pregnancy and family matters, (ii) the Menopause and (iii) some important recent cases with practical HR implications for all elements.
The extension of maternity rights in the context of redundancy, the rights of new mothers in the workplace, pregnancy loss policies, rights during IVF and consideration of the Menopause in the context of disability under the Equality Act 2010 are all highly topical issues at the moment which are forming the basis of potential legislative changes and case law developments.
It’s important for employers to ensure that they keep pace with developments in these areas and are aware of the extent of their obligations and liabilities in the context of these issues.
This PowerHour looks at the recent developments in these areas and provides an update for employers on their current obligations and those which may be on the horizon.
