Should women reveal if they are pregnant at a job interview?
Closed

Legally women are not obligated to reveal if they are pregnant while at a job interview, however do you think the potential employer should know anyway?

Is it unfair to the employer and other candidates to withhold this information (assuming the woman knows that she's pregnant), or does the woman have every right pursue the job? Have you ever been in this situation, either as the employee or employer?

This is a difficult question to answer, and we'd love to know your thoughts!

There is no need to if employers are running interviews fairly. Not to mention things can happen during a pregnancy to change the outcome.
So, no.

Although being pregnant means there will be a possibility that women may not be hired as she is due to have a maternal leave soon, I believe that disclosing the information should be an optional thing. It'd be nice to let your employer know that you are pregnant for the sake of your moral obligation and to let them know what's up, this will build a good relationship and transparency between you and your employer.

I feel that a woman has every right to go for a job, whether she is pregnant or not, and the fact that she is pregnant shouldn't sway an employer as to whether or not she is best for the job.

No they shouldn't. Saying it it's too risky, very likely the job won't be guaranteed.

No, they should not have to unless it would have significant implications in their work.
