Monzo offer paid leave following pregnancy loss

A digital bank is offering its workers paid leave after pregnancy loss, such as miscarriage or abortion.
Monzo's new policy echoes a similar move announced by broadcaster Channel 4 last month.
Both companies will allow either partner affected to take up to two weeks' additional paid leave.
"Monzo takes the mental health of its staff incredibly seriously," the bank said.
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.
