A recently Workplace Discrimination Survey, conducted by the Women’s Aid Organisation (WAO), shed light on workplace discrimination towards pregnant women. The survey revealed the top five ways employers discriminated pregnant women, which include making their positions redundant, denying them promotions, placing them on prolonged probation, demoting them, and terminating their jobs. Sumitra Visvanathan, the Executive Director of WAO, joins us to discuss the findings of this survey and to stress the importance of promoting respect, protection and equal rights for women in the workplace, specifically for pregnant mothers.
