When one of your employees tells you she’s having a baby, this can create a headache for your business.
You need to figure out how to cope without a valuable team member and give her the right amount of maternity leave and pay.

But with help from Employer Advice, it won’t come to this. When you call us, we’ll tell you exactly what you need to do to avoid claims of discrimination and unfair dismissal.
And instead of giving you generic, scripted advice, we’ll listen to your needs and guide you in a way that best suits your business.
