Irish Small and Medium Enterprises chief executive Mark Fielding said most of its members do not pay maternity leave. He said it would have the effect of making employers discriminate against employing young women.

“If there are two candidates and one is a buxom young woman of child-rearing years and the other is a fellow, who is an employer going to hire when he or she knows that they will have to pay 20 weeks’ maternity leave?” he said.  (The Irish Times)
