Abstract

Drawing on the equity theory, we predict that the effect of pregnancy discrimination (Maternity Harassment) differs between the attitudes of regular workers and non-regular workers. Using survey data from 1,049 Japanese workers, we focus on the effect of pregnancy discrimination on the attitude toward work-life balance. We also classify pregnancy discrimination into three types. The results show support our hypothesis partially. We also discuss implications for theory and practice.
