Press Comment: Right To Life UK welcomes plans to extend redundancy protection period for new mothers

Following evidence that suggests that new mothers are still being unfairly forced out of work, the Government has revealed new plans to extend the redundancy protection period by a further 6 months. 

The Government also announced further details about establishing a taskforce to make recommendations on improvements on how to increase awareness amongst pregnant women and new mothers of their maternity rights.

Right To Life UK spokesperson, Clare McCarthy said:

“This announcement is good news for new mothers as no one should be made to feel that their job is in jeopardy, just because they are pregnant or recently gave birth. Therefore it is encouraging to see these workplace protections being put in place in Government policy.

“We want to see the Government continuing to make these pro-women changes in policy to better support mothers and their babies.
