In the provision of goods and services we believe there is a balance to be struck between the interests of single people and the commercial considerations of business.

star this property answer text <p>In November 2013, the government commissioned the largest study of its kind into pregnancy and maternity discrimination in Great Britain. The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) published the interim report of this study earlier this year. The EHRC interim report is available online at: <a href="http://www.equalityhumanrights.com/about-us/our-work/key-projects/managing-pregnancy-and-maternity-workplace/report" target="_blank">www.equalityhumanrights.com/about-us/our-work/key-projects/managing-pregnancy-and-maternity-workplace/report</a></p><p>The final research report will be published later this year. It will tell us what issues women face, who is most at risk and which types of employers and which sectors are most likely to receive complaints about discrimination. This will inform any further action that the government takes in order to ensure that employers and mothers are aware of, and act on, their legal obligations and rights.</p> more like this
