Maternity Guidance

Introduction

This Maternity Guidance is a detailed document to guide staff and managers on all aspects of maternity with regard to employment at Oxford Brookes University. The maternity policy is a condensed version of this document giving details of entitlements and responsibilities.

These web pages have been designed with help from employees who have experienced the maternity provisions at the University.  As a University we have a strong commitment to equal opportunities and this means actively helping male and female employees to combine family life with a satisfying working life.  To enable staff to return to work we have included some information on the University’s childcare provisions and details of the career break, part-time/flexible working and job sharing schemes which may enable a more gradual return to work.
