In this report you will find: 

  • An analysis of the discrimination of pregnant women that was produced by the Alliance Against Pregnancy Discrimination (Citizen's Advice Bureau, Fawcett, Gingerbread, Leigh Day and Co, Maternity Action, Working Families) 
  • Details on the consequences of job loss because of pregnancy or maternity leave and a summary of the regulations to protect women from being made redundant whilst pregnant or on maturity leave 
  • A call on the Government to send a strong message to business that it is illegal to discriminate against a woman at work because she is pregnant or on maternity leave, and that recession and redundancies are not an excuse to break the law
