Accountants in Wimbledon- Updated guidance for pregnancy and maternity protections

Updated guidance has been issued by the Equality and Human Rights Commission to help employers. The guidance provides advice on what employers can do to prevent pregnancy and maternity discrimination at work. Get in Touch with our Wimbledon Accountants to ensure your business is financially prepared for these changes.

The updates are due to the new flexible working laws that came into effect in April 2024, and they outline the changes that employers will have to make because of these laws.

These changes include:

  • Extending protection from redundancy.
  • In a redundancy situation, offering suitable alternative employment.
  • Dealing with the new right to request flexible working from the first day of employment.
  • Increasing the flexibility in how paternity leave is used.

Employers should ensure that they are up-to-date and compliant with the new laws, and the guidance can help with doing that. Get in Touch with our Wimbledon Accountants for advice on managing the financial implications of these changes.

To review the guidance in full, see: Equality and Human Rights Commission Guidance.
