  • Expectant Mothers in the Workplace
    a midwife advises it This time off must be paid but after the initial appointment employers can ask to see evidence of future appointments or classes such as an appointment card or letter Pregnant women should ask their health worker for information relating to work since there are time limits for informing employers of pregnancy and planned maternity leave If a woman is absent from work due to pregnancy related sickness within four weeks of the baby s due date this will trigger her maternity leave automatically even if she had planned to work until closer to the birth By law pregnant women cannot work during the first two weeks after giving birth Factory workers must not work for four weeks A woman s entitlement to maternity leave and maternity pay varies according to the length of time she has worked for an employer and her usual earnings Partners may be entitled to paternity leave but again there are time limits for informing employers of their intention to take leave All pregnant women are protected from any unfair treatment due to their pregnancy and if an employer fails to properly protect the health and safety of a pregnant woman it is automatically regarded as sex discrimination Employers must address any possible risks such as awkward work spaces handling or carrying heavy objects or exposing a pregnant woman to potentially violent customers or clients Since the risks can vary for every job an individual risk assessment is vital Previous Page Next Page You might also like Health and Safety Management Systems Workplace Safety Representatives Do You Have the Correct Fire Extinguishers First Aid Training for Work Workplace Safety Fines and Court Cases Share Your Story Join the Discussion or Seek Advice kirky Your Question Hi am 27 weeks pregnant I work on a bar 12pm till 8pm alone am made to clean the bar with highly concentrated cleaning products lift barrels open shutters reach high for the alcohol and deal with anti social costumers is this even legal my boss as not dun no risk assment Our Response In the first instance you would need to talk to your employer directly about this Also as specified in the article you could also discuss any potential risks with your GP or midwife since they can provide a medical certificate advising that you must not be exposed to specific risks WorkplaceSafetyAdvice 9 Sep 15 2 42 PM Hi am 27 weeks pregnant I work on a bar 12pm till 8pm alone am made to clean the bar with highly concentrated cleaning products lift barrelsopen shutters reach high for the alcohol and deal with anti social costumers is this even legal my boss as not dun no risk assment kirky 8 Sep 15 3 11 PM Hi i am 7 months pregnant and my employer has given me a 8pm to 2 am possition working in an empty building to make sure no intuders come in this building has been abandoned an has jo
