Despite laws and policies in Australia protecting employees against discrimination while pregnant, seeking parental leave or returning to work after parental leave, many people are often demoted, forced to resign, made redundant or receive unfavourable treatment during this time.

Unions hear these stories all the time, but we need to let decision-makers in government know about them too.

The Australian Human Rights Commission is now conducting an inquiry into pregnancy at work and returning to work after parental leave.

The ACTU will be making a submission, and we want about people’s experiences. Click below to find out how.
