Hire & Fire employment podcast – parental leave and unfavorable treatment

There are situations in which employees on parental leave should be more favorably treated than their colleagues, due to the strong protection against unfavorable treatment for reasons connected to parental leave.

In this episode of our employment law podcast, our employment law experts Jenny Welander Wadström and Elin Osbeck Rehbinder discuss the strong protection that employees have against unfavorable treatment due to reasons connected to parental leave and how employers should interpret this protection in practice.

In fact, the protection against unfavorable treatment means that, in some situations, this group of employees should be even more favorably treated compared to other employees, which may not always be evident.
