Women play an increasingly important role in the British economy, and accordingly tend to remain in their jobs during pregnancy and to return to work relatively quickly after childbirth. The dramatic rise in the number of mothers returning to work represents a major social change, likely to have implications for fertility patterns, the division of labour in the household and employer opportunities. This study presents the results of two national surveys which investigated the operation of maternity rights legislation in Britain during 1988 and 1989. The first survey interviewed 5000 women who had recently given birth; the second interviewed 500 employers.
