Carers at Work

There are 3 million people in the UK who combine work with care. This is set to rise significantly due mainly to an ageing population. 1 in 5 adults has seen their work impacted as a result of their caring obligations, especially those aged 45 to 64.

Productivity, attendance and stress levels can suffer when employees are juggling the demands of work and care. As an employer how do you manage this when you have the competing needs of other employees and a business to manage too?

Many employers are unaware of their legal obligations towards employee carers.  

For more information on being a carer, either as an employee or employer, please contact Jackie Cuneen on [email protected].
