Letters – Maternity rights will not be impacted by leaving the EU


Dear Editor,

As far as I can tell, the core strategy of the “IN” campaign so far has been to scaremonger about a post-Brexit UK.    The latest example of this scaremongering caught my attention; Frances O’Grady from the TUC Union has warned that leaving the EU could threaten maternity leave rights in the UK.

I would like to take this opportunity to reassure both Frances O’Grady and your readers that they have do not need to worry about this. The UK already offers better maternity leave rights than the EU requires; maternity leave will be unaffected by Brexit.
