Supporting working parents

The Australian Human Rights Commission has launched a new website to promote the understanding of rights and obligations in the workplace around pregnancy, parental leave and return to work.

The new Supporting working parents external-icon.png website offers employees and employers tailored information on a range of workplace issues affecting working parents including:

  • help with understanding the law
  • information for pregnant employees and pregnancy in the workplace
  • commencing and coming back from parental leave
  • commencing or ending employment as a parent or while on parental leave.

The website also has downloadable quick guides, checklists and toolkits to help employers to support working parents and employees to know their rights.
