Hard labour? Pregnancy, discrimination and workplace rights

24 Oct 2007
Description

The main aims of this study were to identify the nature of the difficulties currently experienced by Victorian women workers before, during and after taking maternity leave; and to identify whether, and the extent to which, the WorkChoices changes have exacerbated or might exacerbate these difficulties. A specific analysis of the WorkChoices regulatory changes to the unpaid parental leave standard and unlawful termination was also undertaken to assess the adequacy of existing protections for women workers before, during and after taking maternity leave.
