Description:
The experience of being in employment while pregnant or returning to work after having a child is not well researched in Ireland or indeed internationally. This report forms part of a major new research study on women’s experiences in the workplace during and after pregnancy commissioned by the HSE Crisis Pregnancy Programme and the Equality Authority. In addition to this report, the research involved a literature review examining a range of literature on pregnancy at work (Russell & Banks, 2011) and a nationwide survey of 2,300 women who gave birth between July 2007 and June 2009 (Russell, Watson, Banks, forthcoming). The broad objective of the research was to investigate the influence of pregnancy and childbirth on women’s employment experiences, including an assessment of pregnancy-related discrimination in Ireland, and how these experiences are shaped by organisational factors and women’s attitudes and characteristics.
