The neonatal care act and its impact on businesses
Are you aware of the new legislation aimed at reducing the challenges faced by working parents with sick newborns? As an employer, it’s important to stay informed about this development.
In the UK, an estimated 90,000 babies are born prematurely or with health complications annually, resulting in around one in seven babies being admitted to neonatal units each year.
This can be an incredibly stressful and uncertain time for parents and their families, as they navigate prolonged periods of additional care for their newborns. Many are forced to make difficult decisions regarding their leave entitlements or returning to work while their child remains in the hospital.
