Called 'the bible of working parents' rights', Maternity and Parental Rights is a comprehensive guide to the statutory framework relating to parents' rights at work - a patchwork of UK and European employment, discrimination and social security law.

'This book is essential reading for everyone who has to advise upon, implement or think about these laws and the issues which they raise ... it remains the essential text in this area for lawyers, students, trade unionists, advice workers, human resources personnel and, indeed, for everyone who needs or wants to understand more about the laws which govern the working lives of so many people.' Mrs Justice Cox DBE, from her foreword.

The authors provide expert guidance on the law including up to date coverage of developments in case-law, and a wealth of practical tips and tactics. The text is supplemented with helpful tables, flowcharts, contacts and precedents. This edition is up to date to include all the recent statutory provisions which apply from April 2007, and includes:-

  • in-depth analysis of employment discrimination law with lots of practical examples from reported and unreported cases;
  • rights and protection before birth and health and safety protection;
  • examination of the amended Sex Discrimination Act 1975, Equal Pay Act 1970 and associated law;
  • legal rights to all types of family leave - maternity, adoption, paternity, parental, time off for dependants and associated rights;
  • right to return to work after leave and protection from dismissal;
  • maternity, adoption and paternity pay and associated benefits;
  • 'right to request' flexible working to care for children and others, including indirect sex discrimination and the rights of part-time workers;
  • dispute resolution procedures and time limits and how they apply in discrimination, dismissal, detriment and other cases;
  • employment tribunal procedure;
  • remedies and how to calculate compensation;
  • effect of European law on working parents' rights in the UK.
