In addition, pregnant women are prohibited from working in jobs where they risk being exposed to X-rays, oil and petrol derivatives and other substances, which risk deforming the foetus. In principle, women are not allowed to work between 8pm and 6am. Exceptions to this rule include, inter alia, work in hotels, restaurants, airports, hospitals, and accounting where there are annual audits to do.
