Supporting Working Parents: Pregnancy and Return to Work National Review - Employer, business and industry associations

Online questionnaire for employer, business and industry associations

The Australian Human Rights Commission is conducting a National Review on the prevalence, nature, and consequences of discrimination relating to pregnancy at work and on return to work after parental leave.

The Commission is interested in consulting all relevant stakeholders to ensure that the National Review gains in-depth understanding of the concerns of different groups. In particular, the Commission is interested in understanding the challenges faced by organisations and businesses in managing employees who are pregnant, on parental leave or returning to work following parental leave. We would also like hear about leading practices and strategies implemented in the workplace for addressing these challenges.

We invite employer, business and industry associations to share information with the National Review to help ensure that the experiences and concerns of your members are reflected in the National Review.

Australian Government Statistical Clearing House Approval Number: 02352 – 01

This questionnaire will take you approximately 15 minutes to complete.

Note: Submissions received will ordinarily be made available on the Review’s website. People wishing to make a confidential submission should make this clear at the time of lodgement and the Review will not publish those submissions. However, people should be aware that whilst every endeavour will be made to ensure confidentiality, there is a possibility that such submissions might be released in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 1992.

To protect other people’s privacy, when referring to other individuals please use a pseudonym (for example AB). Please also use a pseudonym for other organisations/businesses, as in some cases identifying details could lead to legal liability. Submissions that identify individuals or organisations, other than the person and organisation responding to the questionnaire, may not be published or may be published with those identifying details removed.

The Commission reserves a right not to publish a submission if it considers that it would be inappropriate to do so, that assessment being in the Commission’s ultimate discretion.
