Miscarriage and the Workplace

An estimated one in four pregnancies ends in miscarriage. A smaller but significant number will be ectopic or molar pregnancies. Some people will experience multiple losses. Most workplaces have staff who have been or may be affected.

If you have experienced a miscarriage and require advice and guidance on your employment rights, contact the Equity staff member for your sector. You can find their details on our contact page. If you're not sure who to speak to call 020 7379 6000.
