#MothersWork – Protect pregnant women and new mothers’ rights at work

On 24 July 2015, the Equality and Human Rights Commission and Department of Business Innovation and Skills released preliminary findings of their £1 million research study into pregnancy and maternity discrimination at work.  We are calling on the Minister for Women & Equalities, Nicky Morgan MP, and the Business Secretary, Sajid Javid, to act quickly to ensure job security for all working women during pregnancy, maternity leave and return to work.

Maternity Action convenes the campaign group, the Alliance Against Pregnancy Discrimination in the workplace, which is made up of parenting groups, unions, advice agencies and health organisations.  We released a plan of action in September 2015.

You can help by sending an email to your MP, asking them to press the Ministers to act now.
