Digital bank Monzo offers paid leave after pregnancy loss

A digital bank is offering its workers paid leave after pregnancy loss, such as miscarriage or abortion. Under the new policy, workers who suffer from pregnancy loss, including stillbirth, miscarriage and abortion, will have up to 10 days' additional paid leave. The leave will also be offered to workers who are partners or surrogate mothers, "Recognising that pregnancy loss doesn't just affect women or heterosexual partners", the bank said. Any loss before that is counted as a miscarriage and does not qualify them for maternity leave or pay. Channel 4's scheme includes two weeks' leave on full-pay; paid leave for medical appointments; flexible working; and resources such as medical support, counselling and a buddying scheme to support employees returning to work after a loss.
