They still give their best when they get pregnant. In spite of that, companies do what they can to marginalize them or even let them go.
Witold Polkowski, expert of Employers of Poland, partially blames the state for problems between employers and pregnant women. Why? Because regulations protecting pregnant women are often changed without prior notice. – Often we simply do not have the time to prepare ourselves. We learn about changes on a day-to-day basis and sometimes new regulations require serious organizational changes.
Meanwhile, research conducted by Millward Brown SMG KRC shows that 17 percent of Polish employers believe pregnant women to be less valuable employees. The same research shows that every third Polish woman fears that she will get into trouble at her job is she gets pregnant. Statistics show that as much as 16 percent of women are let go or forced to resign after they return from maternal leave.
