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 launched a series of equality guides to help employers and managers identify, tackle and prevent discrimination in the workplace. Our guidance on pregnancy and maternity discrimination is available at

"Acas is also working with the EHRC on a new e-learning course and we fully support the Commission's #worksforme awareness initiative to help employers manage pregnancy and maternity."
