Acas statement on EHRC research on maternity & pregnancy discrimination

Friday 24 July 2015

Acas has put out a statement in response to the Equality and Human Rights Commission's (EHRC) research on pregnancy and maternity discrimination today:

Acas Head of Equality Steve Williams said:

"It is clear from this valuable research that businesses need to treat all their workers fairly as this will help them stay within the law.

"We have published a new guide today on Pregnancy and maternity discrimination. From next month we are also launching a series of equality guides to help employers and managers identify, tackle and prevent discrimination in the workplace.

"Acas fully supports the Commission's #worksforme awareness initiative to help employers manage pregnancy and maternity."
