New guidance has been launched to help employees who have premature or sick babies – and to enable employers to support them in the best way possible.
Over 95,000 premature or sick babies are born each year in the UK and it can be a difficult time for parents. Work may be the last thing they want to think about.
This new guidance provides important information for employees and employers in these challenging situations.
It has been released by Acas, which provides information, advice, training, conciliation and other services for employers and employees to help prevent or resolve workplace problems.
