Working parent? What are your rights?

As a working parent it can be difficult to juggle work and family commitments.

You might have questions as to what your rights are to flexible working or if you need time off to deal with an emergency involving a dependent. Maybe you would like to understand a bit more about your entitlements to parental leave or shared parental leave.

In our new Parental Rights Employment Bulletin, you will find an outline of your rights as an employee if you are a parent.

You can read it here or call our Employment Advice line on 028 9024 4401 if you would like to speak to one of our advisers.
