Can an interviewer ask about your maternity leave and return to work date?
Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone can help, please? Currently on Mat leave and have an interview for an internal job. Are the interviewers allowed to ask about my maternity leave, planned return etc? And if so, can they discriminate based on my R2W date? Thanks
