Good Luck.
More than one in four British mothers who have returned to work feel discriminated against. This is according to survey conducted by legal firm Slater and Gordon (S&G). Researchers questioned 1,975 women about their experiences in workplace before and after giving birth. Most of women had never filed any kind of complaint as they suspected it would be waste of time and be even more detrimental to their career prospects. Grievances aired in survey included mothers being overlooked for promotion, and more junior employees progressing faster up career ladder. Another common gripe was their points of view being considered less worthy than those of colleagues without children.

The findings contrast with opinions of managers and employers. director at Britain's Confederation of British Industry (CBI) said: "We don't recognise picture painted here. Our experience is that…businesses are better than ever at managing maternity leave and reintegrating mothers on their return." UK's employment minister Jo Swinson said: " government is committed to making sure that more businesses make best use of women's talents throughout the organisation, from boardroom to shop floor." S&G lawyer Kiran Daurka said: "It is shocking that so few women speak out when they suffer discrimination." She accused employers of avoiding issues and of "burying their heads in sand".
