8th March 2017 - WeAreTheCity
Today, 8 March, is International Women’s Day. A good opportunity to take stock and reflect on how much we’ve achieved in terms of equality in the workplace here in the UK.
Without doubt we have made advances, but it is disappointing that 47 years after the Equal Pay Act we still seem to be discussing the same old issues. Discrimination against pregnant employees is still a very real issue, in fact a report by the Women and Equalities Commission found that not only was discrimination against pregnant women on the rise, but that things were worse now than a decade ago.
