Course Overview

Having a baby is a life-changing experience and returning after maternity leave can be a big step, especially if the employee is breastfeeding. Employees and employers have interlinked rights and responsibilities to help protect the health and safety of new mothers in the workplace. A clear understanding on both sides helps things move more smoothly.

Our New Mothers in the Workplace course forms part of our New and Expectant Mothers group of eLearning courses. The course outlines best practice regarding risk assessments and the steps employers must take to remove risks. Learners are then invited to apply their learning to their own situation to identify any further action that may be necessary.

The Importance of New and Expectant Mothers Training

Employees returning to work after maternity leave sometimes face challenges. It is a time of adjustment that can bring heightened risks to the mother’s health and safety, and the employer has a duty of care to help her through this time. If she is breastfeeding when she returns, there are steps her employer must take to accommodate that.

FAQ's

If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

Employers can help working mothers by engaging in regular, honest communication and being as flexible as possible. Where schedules can be adjusted, they should be. When new mothers return after leave, it is important to discuss their needs with them and not to assume you already know.

After returning from maternity leave, you have a right to return to your job on terms no less favourable than before you left. The specifics of your post-maternity leave rights might vary depending on your circumstances, but you should never be discriminated against because of your new status as a working mother.

It is very much possible to return to work and breastfeed at the same time. Many mothers do this every year. Employers must provide you with a satisfactory environment to continue to pump milk at work and help you to arrange time away to do so. Mothers returning from maternity leave have a right to support.
