Extending redundancy protection for pregnant women and new parents

Extending Redundancy Protections for Pregnant Women and New Parents

05 April 2019

CILEx submission to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy’s consultation on proposals for extending redundancy protections to pregnant women and new parents. 

CILEx is proud of the diversity in its membership body, by which 75% of members are women, and to whom these proposals shall be relevant on more than one level. CILEx is pleased to see government efforts to address structural inequalities in the workplace and acknowledges these proposals as a welcome first step, however, this alone will not be sufficient to tackle some of the underlying problems that have "pushed out" pregnant women and new mothers from the profession.
