Workingmums' response to Government announcement on split maternity/paternity leave
Reuters UK - September 2009
Gillian Nissim, founder of workingmums.co.uk, said: "Workingmums welcomes the news that the Government is to allow parents to share the second six months' parental leave after their baby is born. We believe it will have a positive impact on family life, both economically, since women are often the main breadwinners in
their family, and practically. It will give dads the opportunity to spend more time with their children and take an equal role in raising their children from a very young age.
"This could in turn encourage more dads to seek flexible working so that they continue to play a strong role in their children's upbringing and will break down the barriers which have held women back in their careers for so long. A more equal sharing of flexible work would not only improve family life, but would result in more flexible jobs at senior level, greater diversity at senior levels and would ensure companies make the most of the
talent and experience they have within their workforce."
