Today, getting to office with a buldging stomack raises far little eyebrows than they used to in the past-some employers still insist on the no pregnancy policy at the places of work inspite of the available labour laws in this area. I was wondering, are pregnant women getting better treatment at he work place in your country today than they ever did in the past!

Hello dear academic friend. To answer your questions raised in the discussion, I say "yes, they are." Here in my school, when the pregnant teachers with buldging stomach can sit teaching if they want to. And they are given months' leave before and after their delivering the babies and they still get paid during those months stipulated as long as six months. Thanks.

I don't think there is a whole lot of difference for a pregnant woman in the workplace until she gets farther along in her pregnancy. alot of workplaces will not put you on light duty and such until they absolutely have to, which makes the pregnancy risky. It isn't fair but they have no sympathy at most places.
