Striking a balance: the work of the Legal Advice Service in 2015
Our Legal Advice Service provides support to working parents and carers on key employment rights including maternity and paternity leave and pay, negotiating a flexible working pattern, and using unpaid leave to deal with family commitments. Crucially, staff on the advice line coach callers on how to achieve the best solution for them and their employer: we’re committed to helping people stay in their jobs.
We delivered more than 3,200 pieces of advice over 2,800 people asking for our help in 2015. But we know that many more people are in need of our support.
