Can a pregnant employee still work nights?

Yes, as long as it does not pose a risk to her health and safety. However if a doctor or midwife provides your employee with a medical certificate stating that she must not continue to work nights, then you must offer suitable alternative day work on the same terms and conditions. If that is not possible, then the employee should be suspended from work, on paid leave, for as long as necessary or until the maternity leave starts.
