Pregnancy and parental discrimination at work
Pregnancy discrimination at work is when an employer treats an employee badly because of their pregnancy.
– Refused shifts because you are pregnant.
– fired because you are pregnant.
– made redundant while you are on parental leave.
– told that you no longer can go back to your old job after returning from parental leave.
– refused a promotion because you are pregnant.
The Australian Government Supporting Working Parents | (humanrights.gov.au) website has resources for both employees and employers to learn about their rights and obligations.
