Are you experiencing pregnancy or maternity discrimination?
Maternity and pregnancy discrimination is a very real issue experienced by women across the country. A shocking report published by the Equality and Human Rights Commission in 2017 found that 77% of mums felt that they had been discriminated against at work. Of this 77%, only 28% raised this with a manager, 3% submitted a grievance and 1% pursued it in an employment tribunal.
