There’s often anxiety and stigma in the workforce on parental and maternity leave. Owen Hodge Lawyers believes this anxiety should not exist as by law every employee is entitled to this time off work, however, many employees are worried about what their employers may think or if they will get their job back at the end of the leave period.
 
An effective way to combat this is for employers to adopt a nurturing approach and keep in contact with the employee during this period. We explain why and how in the info graphic below.
