New and Expectant Mothers
The Employment Rights Act defines what new and expecting mothers are entitled to. The Equality Act makes it against the law to discriminate based on "protected characteristics." Pregnancy and being on parental leave are considered "protected characteristics," ensuring that an employee cannot be deprived of their rights simply due to pregnancy.
