Government to issue new guidance to support working mothers with premature babies

The government is set to publish guidance aimed at supporting working mothers with premature babies. The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy will work in association with the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service in drafting the guidance which will include advice on how employers can offer flexible working arrangements following a premature birth and how employers should deal with requests for additional time off from workers with premature babies.

Acas has said that the guidance will be available on their site soon, however a specific date has yet to be confirmed.
