Maternity Action report

Released on: 09 December 2013

In response to the Maternity Action report, which shows that the number of women forced out of their jobs because they are either pregnant or on maternity leave has more than doubled in the past decade.

NCT’s Policy Adviser Elizabeth Duff says:

“NCT supports the Maternity Action report and is appalled at some of its findings. It makes no sense to push parents of young children out of a job, then spend time and money recruiting other workers.

“We are aware that some employers act illegally but those who wish to follow the rules need more guidance. We have published our recommendations for good practice for both families and businesses.”
