TikTok boss says should not offer maternity pay

Written by: | |

Last month, a senior TikTok boss reportedly told his London staff that he doesn’t think companies should offer paid maternity leave.

We don’t know whether Joshua Ma’s comment was made in passing, or whether he really believes that women shouldn’t need to take time off before and after the birth of a child. Either way, his outdated attitude may well put many women off from applying for a position at this global company – something that’s discussed by commentators in this article from HR Magazine. (Thankfully, TikTok confirmed that it does, in fact, offer 30 weeks’ paid maternity leave for employees in the UK.)
