Family and parental rights continue to be a complex and sensitive area for HR professionals. This update will look at recent developments in order to help you minimise the risk of grievances or legal claims.

A new right to parental bereavement leave is due to take effect in 2020, and we’re still awaiting news as to whether proposals for grandparental leave will be taken forward. We will consider the latest position on shared parental leave, including whether it is potentially sex discrimination to pay less for this type of leave than for maternity leave. The session will also cover recent cases on maternity leave and rights, including any developments in relation to discrimination, and the related topic of flexible working on return from leave.

Cancellation policy

For any cancellations received in writing not less than eight (8) days prior to the event, you will receive a 100% credit to be used at another related event which must occur within one year from the date of issuance of such credit. No credit will be issued for any cancellations occurring within seven (7) days (inclusive) of the event. You may substitute the delegates attending no later than 2 working days prior to the event.

If you have had a place confirmed, you do not attend and you do not give us any notice we will not provide a refund or any credit against any other training and it cannot be transferred.
