Maternity protection; notice of employment of pregnant or nursing woman

If one of your employees, students or pupils has informed you that she is pregnant or breastfeeding, you must notify the relevant labor inspectorate.



Your coworker, student, or pupil has informed you that she is pregnant or breastfeeding.


Notification of the employment or activity of a pregnant or breastfeeding woman must be made online to the trade supervisory office at the district government with regional jurisdiction for the place of employment or place of training and study of the pregnant or breastfeeding woman (see under "Online procedure").

The forms provided under "Forms" are to be used for the supplementary notifications to the trade supervisory office.


The notification must be made immediately after the employee announces the pregnancy or breastfeeding to the employer or, in the case of a student, to the school/college. If the pregnancy has already been reported, additional notification of the breastfeeding period is no longer necessary.
