Guidance (2): Miscarriage Association

The Miscarriage Association has published a leaflet (available here), that contains information and advice for employers on how to support staff affected by miscarriage during their employment.

It includes information on the signs and symptoms of miscarriage, suggestions of how to deal with an employee’s time off work and return to work.  It also summarises employers’ legal obligations connected with miscarriage such as paid time off for ante-natal appointments, risk assessments for pregnant workers, and dealing with related sickness absence.
