The Equality Act 2010 makes it unlawful for any employer to treat a person less favourably due to their disability or for any other ?protected? personal characteristic that they have such as their age sexual orientation or race. This means an employer must offer the same employment terms and conditions pay and benefits and employment opportunities such as training transfer or promotion to a person who has one or more of these protected characteristics as they would to any other worker.

If an employer withdraws a job offer because they find out about a disability or the pregnancy of a potential employee this constitutes discrimination under the Equality Act 2010. In the cases of pregnancy this is the case even if the position for which she is applying is for a fixed term and you will not be able to see the term through or if the position is to cover someone else’s maternity leave. There is no obligation of a job applicant to disclose her pregnancy to a potential employer at the interview or before accepting the post.
