Acas response to EHRC research on pregnancy and maternity discrimination

Tuesday 22 March 2016

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 www.acas.org.uk/pregnancydiscrim.

"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."
