A dad and his young daughter are sitting at a table in their home in front of a laptop computer.

Do you employe parents in your business?

If you do then you really need to download this guide as it tells you everything you need to know about their rights and entitlements.

Today, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS) a huge proportion of the UK workforce are parents. In 2021, the ONS said 75% of mothers and 92% of fathers were in employment so it’s highly likely that you’re employing parents right now, or will do in the future.

For this reason, and because of changing attitudes towards work-life balance and flexibility, it’s important for you, as an employer, to understand your responsibilities. Not only to create a supportive and family-friendly workplace for parents but also to ensure that you maximise the value working parents add to your business.

This guide will provide you with an overview of everything you need to know about employing parents in the UK, including their rights and entitlements, the benefits of a family-friendly workplace, and tips on how to create a supportive work environment.
