star this property answer text <p>The standard rate of Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP) is reviewed annually. Since 2011, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) has provided the basis of any uprating and, for the 2018/19 tax year, the standard rate of SMP will increase by just under 3%</p><p> </p><p>The first six weeks of an award of SMP are also related directly to the earnings of the claimant, with no upper limit, rather than being set at a prescribed rate.</p><p> </p><p>In respect of protection provided for pregnant women, the law is absolutely clear: discrimination in the workplace is unlawful, with clear regulations in place which every employer must follow. We are working to raise employees’ and employers’ awareness of what the law already requires, and considering options for legislation if this does not drive change.</p><p> </p><p>We are also funding the Equality Advisory and Support Service, an entirely free advice helpline open to anyone in England, Scotland and Wales, who feels that they may have been the victim of unlawful discrimination, including because of pregnancy and maternity.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Paying parents are already required to provide information needed to make any decision where requested under the Child Support Act 1991. Where a calculation is based on a parent’s historic income, then changes may be reported within the year, however such changes will be picked up from the income data obtained from HMRC at annual review, so additional legal duties are not required. This provides a stable predictable maintenance amount allowing effective budgeting for both parents. There is also an existing duty within the Child Support Information Regulations 2008 which requires parents whose maintenance calculation is based upon their current income to report relevant income changes.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to protecting people with disabilities in the workplace and The Equality Act 2010 places obligations on employers with disabled employees, including the requirement to make reasonable adjustments, which may include granting leave related to the employee's disability.</p><p> </p><p>However, the Act recognises the need to strike a balance between the needs of disabled people and those of employers. What is ‘reasonable’ will be different for each employer because of factors such as the practicality and the cost of making the adjustment. A court or tribunal may ultimately make a final decision on whether a particular person meets the definition of disability in the Act and whether an adjustment request is reasonable.</p><p> </p><p>Practical advice on reasonable adjustments is available from a number of sources, including Acas and the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). The EHRC’s examples of reasonable adjustments for employers include disability leave.</p><p> </p><p>If a disabled person feels that they have not been treated fairly by an employer, the Equality Advisory Support Service (EASS) offers information and advice about discrimination, including disability discrimination. EASS can be contacted by telephone, via an online contact form or by post.</p>
