Slater and Gordon Lawyers 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 & Safety risk assessments, restructuring or redundancy during maternity leave, and refusing to agree flexible working requests on return to work.
Pregnancy and childbirth should be a happy and joyful experience, but unfortunately it can often be made stressful by problems at work.
At Slater and Gordon Lawyers we represent women being sidelined when they tell their employer they are pregnant, and/or being selected unfairly for redundancy because of their pregnancy. There are also Health & 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 are happy to advise women whose requests for flexible working have been turned down without proper explanation or reason.
Immediate legal representation is available anywhere in the UK.
If you feel you may have a Maternity Discrimination Claim, please fill in our online discrimination enquiry form and answer some straightforward questions. A Solicitor that specialises in maternity discrimination claims will then assess the prospects of your claim and contact you with his/her opinion. The service is free and 100% confidential.
Our Maternity Discrimination Solicitors have prepared two legal advice guides which you can download and print. See Pregnancy / Maternity Discrimination at Work.
