If you or your partner is (or hopes to become) pregnant, you likely have questions about maternity leave and how this significant life event will impact your job, and vice versa. If that’s the case, you’re in luck.
Over the years, we’ve put together several resources to educate and reassure employees about their workplace rights and responsibilities before, during and after pregnancy and maternity leave. In those blog posts, we discuss the basic legal protections afforded to pregnant employees and new parents by both the British Columbia Employment Standards Act and Human Rights Code and cover topics such as:
- Pregnancy, parental and maternity leave from work
- Workplace accommodations
- Job protection / security
