Throughout the pandemic working parents have had to deal with repeated periods of disruption to schooling and childcare and have often struggled to balance leave, work, and caring responsibilities.
Usdaw wants to actively support working parents during lockdown and beyond. We have set out below the current advice for Usdaw members who are juggling working with parenting. We explain what the law says about lockdown and childcare and what Usdaw is doing to try and ensure parents get the support they need at work.
Please note that the official advice is changing on a daily basis. This guidance from Usdaw should be used alongside public health information and official Government guidance.
