Toolkits, Guides and Policies
Toolkits, guides and policies for employers
Working Families members have access to the following guides and factsheets which have been designed to support you and your organisation:
This guide is designed to help you navigate and construct your own multi-faceted business case.
Model policies for you to use or adapt for your own organisation.
These guides are intended to provide practical guidance to support you in supporting your team, and should be read in conjunction with any internal policies or guidelines in existence in your organisation, and/or guidance from your HR/Personnel team.
This checklist is intended to help you review the policies, processes and supporting materials that you have put in place to support parents and carers in your workplace. It is not intended to be an exhaustive list of all the areas for consideration, but should provide a basic framework and starting point.
This guide is intended to give practical advice on some of the key issues and challenges of effectively implementing flexible working.
Many organisations have recognised the importance of ensuring that mothers, adoptive mothers and expectant mothers receive full support throughout their pregnancy, Maternity/Adoption leave (or Shared Parental leave) and after their return to work.
In recent years, ideas about the participation of fathers in family life have undergone profound change, and it has become increasingly untenable to assume that mothers will always act as the primary carer for young children and babies.
Eligibility and notice requirements for Statutory provisions for Ordinary and Additional Paternity Leave and Pay
This factsheet sets out the key points about Shared Parental leave, and is intended to work in conjunction with the Mothers and Fathers guides. It is not intended to cover every possibility, and you should refer to the Gov.uk guidance and ACAS guidance if you have other questions which are unanswered.
Working from home can be an extremely effective way to carry out many different roles, but it is important to make sure that you carefully consider the impact and arrangements at the outset to avoid the possible pitfalls, and ensure that ongoing support is in place.
