Top 10 businesses offering miscarriage leave
As of May 2021, the aforementioned nine businesses were all of the companies openly endorsing miscarriage leave to their employees.
Here are two government organisations who are discussing the legal implementation of miscarriage leave:
- Scottish National Party MP Angela Crawley wrote to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, demanding at least three days of paid leave for women and men who endure the loss of a baby. “It is our role to support those suffering without adequate time to grieve”, said Crawley.
“The grief that comes with miscarriage is not a sickness; it is a loss”, said Ginny Andersen, a Labour MP in New Zealand. “That loss takes time – time to recover physically and time to recover mentally; time to recover with a partner”.
