Transparency of family friendly policies from 6 April 2020 rights to leave should be included in written statements of terms. Will this apply to workers as well as employees? Is this a day one right? What rights to include?

• What’s in the pipeline – new Government proposals

Neonatal leave and pay, Right to request a more predictable contract, A week’s leave for unpaid carers’, and Flexible working as default as set out in the Conservative Party’s manifesto. What do these mean? What would these new rights look like?
