Our Parental and Family Templates Toolkit streamlines support for employees, ensuring smooth transitions and work-life balance.

Our toolkit includes a range of templates that are designed to simplify the process of managing and supporting parental leave, save you time and effort, and ensure compliance with all relevant employment legislation. From creating parental leave policies and procedures to managing shared parental leave and handling parental leave requests, our templates cover all the necessary documents required to support employees who are parents.

We also have budget-friendly bundles featuring this toolkit:

What is Parental and family?

The purpose of parental, maternity, paternity, and adoption templates is to provide employees and employers with clear and consistent information about their rights and obligations under employment law when it comes to caring for a new child.

These templates can help ensure that both parties are aware of their responsibilities and entitlements and can help facilitate a smoother transition to a new family dynamic.

By providing clear communication about entitlements to parental leave, flexible working, and other support options, employers can help employees balance their work and family responsibilities, reduce stress and anxiety, and maintain their job satisfaction and productivity. Additionally, the use of these templates can help ensure compliance with relevant employment legislation and best practices.

What legal and best practice aspects should employers be aware of?

  • Employees have a legal right to take time off work for various family-related reasons, including maternity leave, paternity leave, adoption leave, shared parental leave, and time off for dependants.

  • Employers must ensure that they have clear policies and procedures in place for managing family-related leave, and that these are communicated effectively to employees.

  • Employers must comply with statutory leave entitlements, such as maternity and paternity leave, and should ensure that they do not discriminate against employees who exercise their right to take leave.

  • Employers must ensure that they provide a safe and healthy working environment for pregnant employees and new mothers, and that they carry out risk assessments and make any necessary adjustments to ensure their safety.

  • Employers may be required to provide reasonable adjustments to employees who have caring responsibilities for disabled dependants, in order to ensure that they are able to balance their work and caring responsibilities.

  • Employers should ensure that any requests for family-related leave are dealt with promptly and fairly, and that employees are informed of the outcome in writing.

  • Employers should ensure that employees are aware of their rights and entitlements with regard to family-related leave, and that any concerns or queries are addressed promptly and sensitively.

It is important for employers to have clear policies and procedures in place for managing family-related leave, to comply with UK employment law, and to support their employees' wellbeing and work-life balance.
