54,000 women are unfairly forced to leave their jobs due to pregnancy and maternity discrimination in the UK every year. This has a huge impact on their and their families’ health, well-being and financial future.

Today, we are calling on Government to adopt the German model of redundancy protection, by which pregnant women and new mothers can only be made redundant in specific circumstances.

This approach is recommended by the Women and Equalities Select Committee and would provide effective workplace protection to pregnant women and new mothers.
