Family Friendly Rights

Family Friendly Rights

Will there be any change to the new family rights?

  • Bereavement Leave- this would become a statutory entitlement for all workers.
  • Would look at making the new one week carer’s leave entitlement, which came into force in April 2024, a paid entitlement for employees.
  • Parental leave would become a day one right.
  • In line with the new extended protection against redundancy for pregnant employees and those on maternity, Labour would ban the dismissal of those returning from maternity leave for 6 months. This would be except for specific circumstances.

Are there any proposed changes to protect whistle-blowers?

  • Employees who report sexual harassment will be automatically counted as whistle blowers.
