TUC report on ‘Ending Discrimination at Work for New Mothers’

The Pregnancy Test: Ending Discrimination at Work for New Mothers was published by the TUC in December 2014.

The report says that ‘pregnancy and motherhood can seriously affect a woman’s career. Around a quarter of women don’t return to work after maternity leave, and one in six of the mums who do go back, change jobs because their employer won’t allow them to work reduced or flexible hours. It identifies ten ways pregnant women and new mothers are mistreated at work and five things that need to change’.
