The Government Carers Action Plan 2018 – 2020 highlighted the important part employers play in supporting carers. A carer who is supported to combine working and caring may be better able to maintain their own wellbeing; not just financially but socially and emotionally.

It benefits employers to be able to retain experienced employees and to develop a reputation as a carer friendly employer.

Carers have the following rights at work.

There is a growing body of support for employers to help them become more carer friendly and to understand their duties towards carers. You may want to look at these links to see if it is something you can bring to your employer’s attention.
