Fertility campaigners are asking the community to support a new initiative to offer employment rights to those going through fertility treatment
Fertility Matters at Work launched the initiative in partnership with MP Nickie Aiken who submitted a private members’ bill to implement rights to have time off for fertility treatment.
The bill got its first reading in June and is due to go back in front of MPs for its second reading in November.
One of the founders of Fertility Matters at Work, Natalie Silverman, said: “What we are trying to encourage is for people to help make a difference by writing to their local MP asking for their support for this proposed legislation to offer the statutory right for time off for fertility treatment.
“Over the next few months, we want to fill the inboxes of MP’s all over the country to get them to take notice and realise the need to support this bill. You both will know the power of sharing personal stories and how it can really help bring to life the challenge of fertility treatment in everyday working lives, helping to drive momentum & support Nickie in getting this legislation through parliament.
