About 54,000 new mothers in Britain are losing their jobs every year, having been dismissed, made compulsorily redundant or treated so poorly they felt they had to leave their jobs, according to a report published by the Equality and Human Rights Commission, based on a survey of more than 3,200 women in the United Kingdom.


With maternity leave so well-established in the workplace, why do the problems remain? Probably because there are still challenges for most employers.
