Maternity discrimination in the workplace
There's a lot of discussion going on in the news today around pregnancy issues, maternity rights, paternity rights, how this affects the workplace and comparing this between the UK and other countries around the world.
We have a news item on this today: MPs demand protections for working women against pregnancy discrimination
And also a feature from last year: Is pregnancy discrimination putting women off having children?
What are your thoughts on this topic? Do you feel you've been discriminated against as a pregnant woman, a mum or a dad? I'm hearing people on the radio say that they have small businesses and struggle with maternity leave - so how do you see the workforce issue or the advice around it?
Or maybe you are in a support role and have examples of success?
