Pregnant employees have extra legal rights including the rate to paid time off for antenatal care maternity leave and maternity pay. They have protection against unfair treatment discrimination or dismissal and an employer cannot change a pregnant employee’s contract terms and conditions without their agreement.
Employees are required to tell their employer about the pregnancy at least 15 weeks before the beginning of the week which their baby is due to be born. If some reason this was a possible such as the employee not knowing they were pregnant they must tell their employer as soon as possible. An employee is also required to tell their employer when they want their statutory maternity leave and pay to start. An employee cannot take paid time off for antenatal appointments until their employer has been told about the pregnancy.
If a pregnant employee decides against taking statutory maternity leave they must take two weeks off after the baby is born or if they work in a factory this must be four weeks.
