Advice on rights and benefits for working parents and carers of adults. Includes information about maternity, caring for disabled children and flexible working for all.
This year’s Supporting Parents and Carers campaign was themed 'Difficult Balancing Act' and we used the day to reach out to members who are juggling their jobs with looking after someone to let them know that:
- The Union understands that changes to contracts and demands for ever greater flexibility are making it harder for members who are parents and carers.
- We can help with problems like hours of work or needing time off to care.
- We can signpost members to appropriate support organisations where difficulties balancing work with care commitments are causing problems outside of work.
- And to raise awareness of rights at work.
