Working Families

Information for families and employers on issues such as maternity rights, tax credits, employment rights and flexible working.

Working Families is the UK’s leading work-life balance organisation.  The charity helps working parents and carers and their employers find a better balance between responsibilities at home and work.

A free Legal Helpline gives parents and carers advice on employment rights such as maternity and paternity leave, rights to time off in an emergency, and parental leave, as well as helping them to negotiate the flexible hours they want. Also gives basic advice on the benefits and tax credits that working parents can claim and on maternity discrimination and pregnancy discrimination. Ground breaking research and campaigns seek to change the way we live and work. To that end, and also works with employers to support them in creating workplaces which encourage work-life balance for everyone.

By operating in the real world of pragmatic advice and practical solutions, is making our vision a reality.
