I received an email about this inquiry and thought it would be of interest to you all. I think it's something really important that we Hubbers can get involved in and add a lot of value to!
As you may be aware, the Sex Discrimination Commissioner Elizabeth Broderick, on behalf of the Australian Human Rights Commission is conducting a National Review on discrimination in the workplace related to pregnancy, parental leave and return to work.
The National Review seeks to identify:
· The prevalence, nature, and consequences of discrimination in the workplace related to pregnancy at work and return to work after parental leave
· Challenges faced by employers in managing pregnancy in the workplace
· Challenges faced by male and female employees who are on or returning to work following parental leave and by female employees related to pregnancy at work
· Leading strategies and practices for managing these challenges in a workplace context
Please see the following link for further information about the National Review – http://www.humanrights.gov.au/pregnancy-discrimination
A number of weeks ago we launched an online submission process for women who have been affected by discrimination in the workplace related to pregnancy, and for women and men who have been affected by discrimination in the workplace related to parental leave and return to work following parental leave. This is an opportunity for women and men to share their experiences with the National Review and contribute to the research report and recommendations arising from the Review. Submissions can be made online by 16 December 2013: http://www.humanrights.gov.au/pregnancy-discrimination
