Pregnancy

      When do I tell my boss I’m pregnant?

      Your legal rights and responsibilities in the workplace

      Understandably, most people don’t share their exciting news with everyone in their workplace immediately, but there are laws to protect you during your pregnancy and maternity leave.

      It’s best to let your employers know as soon as possible. But legally speaking, in order to take your maternity leave you must tell your employer in writing about your pregnancy and your plans no later than the 15th week before your baby is due.

      Make sure you know all your maternity rights before you tell your boss. Remember, your rights are the same whether you work part time or full time.

      If you feel you are being unfairly treated because of your pregnancy then contact your local Citizen's Advice Bureau.
