We are delighted to share Episode 15 of The Lawdown, our regular podcast discussing the latest key employment, discrimination and partnership law-related news stories, and the interesting legal issues behind them!
In our latest episode of The Lawdown, Partner Beth Hale, Senior Associate Wonu Sanda and Associate Sophie Rothwell discuss some recently profiled innovative family-friendly policies and developments, including:
- Progressive pregnancy loss policies – what they are and why they are necessary, and the employers who are leading the charge in this sensitive and crucial area.
- The childcare disparity – which recognises that women bear the brunt of childcare responsibilities, and the implications of the recent EAT case which held it was a matter about which judicial notice should be automatically taken.
- Egg freezing policies, as recently introduced by the law firm Cooley, including the potential impact of such policies on the female and general workforce, as well as the potential risks around possible discrimination and messaging.
We hope you enjoy it! For more information on any of the topics discussed, or to suggest a story for us to cover, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
