The Malaysian Trades Union Congress (MTUC) called today for the enactment of a law to protect pregnant workers, after a court slashed an award of RM300,000 in damages to RM30,000 for a woman in a landmark gender discrimination lawsuit against the government.
MTUC secretary-general N. Gopal Kishnam also said Malaysia should make it illegal for prospective employers to ask job candidates if they are pregnant.
