After having a baby going back to work can be a mix of emotions, excitement, sadness, guilt. Chances are you will also want or need flexible work arrangements. Eliza Sarlos from Hall Payne Lawyers takes us through your return to work rights, and how to negotiate what you want.

Eliza will join us for a Facebook Live on pregnancy discrimination and returning to work entitlements as a parent. For more info and to ask Eliza your own questions, check out our event page.
