New Employment Insights Video – Furlough and Maternity Rights


Employment Insights is a series of short Q&A videos aimed at providing practical advice and guidance to workers, employees and employers who are concerned about employment rights and employment law developments during the coronavirus outbreak.

A bank holiday bonus video is now live! Louise Quigley and Amy Smith have created a short webinar on furlough and maternity. We have consolidated all the furlough maternity queries from the insights inbox into three key questions:

  1. Can an employee on maternity leave be furloughed? (1:22)
  2. Are allowances and pay protected during furlough? (3:00)
  3. Can an employer require a pregnant woman to attend work or not? (4:53)

You can review Louise and Amy's profiles on our Employment Page.

To submit a question for discussion please send an email to employmentinsights@9sjs.com. To see more of the Employment Insights series click here.
