Maternity protection; notification of employment of a pregnant or breastfeeding woman

If one of your employees, pupils or students has informed you that she is pregnant or breastfeeding, you must inform the relevant trade supervisory office.



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


Notification of the employment or activity of a pregnant or breastfeeding woman must be submitted online to the trade supervisory office at the district government responsible for the place of employment, training or study of the pregnant or breastfeeding woman (see "Online procedure").


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