Advice for bosses on keeping contact with those on maternity leave
One website has given advice to employers about the best ways to stay in contact with their workers when they are on maternity leave.

According to XpertHR, legislation states that reasonable contact is permitted between a manger and the employee when they are on maternity leave, Personnel Today reports.

However, what is considered to be reasonable will depend on the worker, her position and the kind of work she does.

Similarly, the level of contact should be agreed upon during the leave and the employee is under no obligation to maintain contact.

XpertHR also writes: "Take care that contact during maternity leave does not lead to an employee feeling under pressure to return to work early or to confirm if she will be returning."

Last month, a survey by Data Services found that many people in the UK think the maternity pay received by women is too low, Workplace Law Network reported.
