Unison recently conducted research exploring employees with caring responsibilities. The study surveyed 3000 participants across the UK.

The results highlight how the government and employers are failing to support employees with caring responsibilities. Below are some of the key findings from the study:

  • 47% respondents believe employers discriminate against employees with caring responsibilities
  • 78% believe staying in a job is harder for carers and parents
  • 76% of carers and parents have been forced to make changes to their careers
  • 17% have had to quit altogether, whilst others have taken unpaid leave (32%), or an hourly pay cut (9%)
