star this property answer text <p>In the Government’s response to the Taylor Review we committed to continue to work with a range of partners including Acas and the Equality and Human Rights Commission to improve advice and guidance on pregnancy and maternity issues so that employers are more fully aware of their obligations and women better understand their rights.</p><p> </p><p>Acas produced updated and comprehensive guidance in November 2017. Government will also update and consolidate the pregnancy and maternity discrimination pages on GOV.UK by summer 2018. To inform pregnant women of their rights at an early stage, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is working with the Department for Work and Pensions so that the MAT B1 form (the maternity certificate which enables a pregnant woman to claim Statutory Maternity Pay from her employer) signposts advice and guidance on pregnancy and maternity discrimination. BEIS and the Department for Health and Social Care are also working to signpost advice and guidance through the Start 4 Life campaign.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department ensures that there are robust protections in place for consumers. The Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 (CPRs) requires information given to consumers to be accurate and not misleading. The Regulations prohibit commercial practices, such as labelling, which contain false or misleading information, or which omits material information that a consumers needs to make an informed decision.</p><p> </p><p>In addition the EU regulation on the labelling and marking of textile products (EU Regulation 1007/2011) requires that the presence of non-textile parts of animal origin in textile products, such as leather, beads, pearls and fur, must be clearly labelled in such a way that is not misleading and that the consumer can understand. Products containing such materials – even in small quantities – must be labelled or marked with the phrase “Contains non-textile parts of animal origin” whenever they are made available on the market.</p> more like this
