KPMG: A Family-Friendly Company?

KPMG Headquarter on 345 Park Avenue in New Yor...
Two tweets from separate sources caught my eye this week. They both concerned accounting giant KPMG, "the largest integrated accounting firm in Europe" according to their website.

One tweeter commented that, 

"In [an] interview with KPMG was asked if had kids. I don't. They said good, because they weren't going to employ a mother." 

Another mentioned that when she worked there, a colleague who announced she was pregnant was told: "Oh dear what terrible timing with promotions coming up".

Is this stuff legal?
