Publication Of Parental Leave And Pay Policies

EDM number 1629 in 2017-19, proposed by Jo Swinson on 12/09/2018.

That this House notes with concern that 54,000 women lose their jobs each year because of pregnancy and maternity discrimination; recognises that greater transparency on parental leave and pay would reduce the risk of discrimination during recruitment and would incentivise employers to offer more generous parental pay; and calls upon the Government to bring forward legislation to require companies with more than 250 employees to publish their policies on parental leave and pay.

This motion has been signed by a total of 28 MPs.
