Pregnancy & Maternity

Pregnancy &Maternity

A person discriminates against a person if, in the protected period in relation to a pregnancy, if a person treats a person unfavourably because of the pregnancy, or because of illness suffered by a person as a result of it. A person discriminates against a person who is pregnant or who is on maternity leave if a person is treated unfavourably because a person is on compulsory maternity leave. A person discriminates against a person who is pregnant or who is on maternity leave if a person is treated unfavourably because a person is exercising or seeking to exercise, or has exercised or sought to exercise, the right to ordinary or additional maternity leave. The protected period, in relation to a person’s pregnancy, begins when the pregnancy begins, and ends – if a person has the right to ordinary and additional maternity leave, at the end of the additional maternity leave period or (if earlier) when a person returns to work after the pregnancy; if a person does not have that right, at the end of the period of 2 weeks beginning with the end of the pregnancy.

How can we ensure that people who are pregnant and/ or who are in maternity leave are treated fairly and feel like they belong in our schools?
