Family Friendly Policies Part - 3Posted in : The Essential Elements of the Employee Handbook on 28 November 2019

Whilst there are a number of statutory requirements to be aware of in respect of the policies we cover, there is also quite a lot of room for discretion by you, as an employer. Offering leave or paid time off via your policies that goes beyond your statutory obligations can be a good way to enhance employee relations and show your commitment to family-friendly practices.
