Harriet Green OBE says women shouldn’t be allowed to have a year of maternity leave when they give birth.

She says it’s too long. Harriet may be a very experienced business woman, but as she’s never had children of her own, is she qualified to comment?

As an employer or a pregnant employee, do you know what your rights are and what processes and procedures you have to go through.

Do you know about a MATB1 form or keeping in touch days?

Do you know if you can make someone redundant/be made redundant during maternity leave?
