The statutory rules on maternity leave and pay are notoriously complicated, and additional rights gained under new European Union laws have done little to simplify the situation. Maternity Rights provides a comprehensive and up to date account of employment law relating to pregnancy. Excellent summaries at the beginning of each chapter, thorough referencing, and a decent index will make it a useful handbook for those who advise women in this area, though at a price.
