Pregnancy and Maternity Discrimination Working Group
The Pregnancy and Maternity Discrimination Working Group is
chaired by the Minister for Business, Fair Work and Skills and
meets on a quarterly basis; meetings have

The remit of the group includes developing governance;
reviewing and enhancing guidelines; ensuring employers, in
to medium sized businesses, have more access to advice; and
advice pregnant women receive through NHS channels.
The establishment of the group follows Equality and Human
