We've responded to EHRC data on employer attitudes to pregnant workers and new mothers.  

Our response to EHRC pregnancy data

Neil Carberry, Managing Director for People and Infrastructure policy, said:

“Today’s EHRC poll shows how far we have to go in some firms to change attitudes towards pregnant workers and new mothers. Businesses should not ask about prospective employees family plans at interview, nor act on any assumptions about their career plans. This will help ensure firms behave fairly, but also improves their ability to hire talented people from all backgrounds.”
