PARTNER MATERNITY ISSUES
We regularly advise partnerships and LLPs on issues relating to pregnancy, maternity, flexible working and associated discrimination issues affecting their partners and LLP members. This is a particularly complex area of law as it applies to partners and LLP members.
We advise our clients not only on the basic statutory protections but also on best practice and benchmarking between firms on pregnancy, maternity and related benefits for partners and LLP members.
We contributed the Chapter on Discrimination and Whistleblowing – Protection for LLP Members, in the leading textbook “The Law of Limited Liability Partnerships – Whittaker & Machell”.
