Discrimination against pregnant women investigated

Last week Julia Gillard asked the Human Rights Commission to look into workplace discrimination against women who have children. The Sex Discrimination Commissioner, Elizabeth Broderick, will oversee a national survey to get an accurate picture of discrimination against pregnant women and those going back to work after parental leave. You can listen to the full audio file here.

We’re interested to hear what your personal experience has been. Have you or perhaps someone you know experienced workplace discrimination when pregnant or returning to work due to your ‘caring’ responsibilities?
