Employees’ pregnancy rights

Pregnancy is not a ‘disability’ or ‘illness’. Your employer can not decide when and what conditions you should become a parent. When you’re pregnant, they can not prevent you from working. Instead, they must prepare all facilities and accommodations you need to do your job. That includes more time for breaks or medical appointments. They also must predict solutions for things you’re told not to do -like carrying heavy things- while you’re pregnant (even if it’s part of the job).

Any violation of your pregnancy rights is counted as obvious discrimination. If you face any such treatment, you should immediately report it to higher officials. Rules -clearly- recognize employees’ choice to become a parent and ask employers and workers to work together to deliver this right.
