 | Comments ()

Its advice for employers includes:

  • being compassionate and sensitive in all communication;
  • being discrete - ask parents what they would like to tell their colleagues about their situation;
  • making employees aware of statutory entitlements to leave, such as shared parental leave; and
  • trying to be flexible in giving time off when parents return to work as the baby may have follow up appointments or treatment.
