Bosses assess pregnancy risk

21st April 2008

The survey by Employment Law Advisory Services (ELAS), also showed 76% of managers would not employ someone if they were aware they would become pregnant within six months. ELAS head of consultancy Peter Mooney said: "For many bosses it is down to the bottom line – a pregnant member of staff will cost money."
