We have an excellent reputation and extensive experience in dealing with all types of maternity discrimination and maternity-related cases, including where there is a failure to carry out proper health and safety risk assessments, restructuring or redundancy during maternity leave, or a refusal to agree flexible working requests on return to work.
Pregnancy and childbirth should be a happy and joyful experience. Unfortunately it can often be made stressful by encountering problems in the workplace. At Slater & Gordon Lawyers we often see women being sidelined as soon as they announce their pregnancy to their employer, or being selected unfairly for redundancy because of their pregnancy. There are also health and safety issues regarding pregnant women at work, and regulations to protect new and breastfeeding mothers returning to work. The return to work after maternity leave can be a particularly difficult time, and we often advise women whose requests for flexible working have been turned down without proper explanation or reason.
