What is a Maternity Discrimination?

Discrimination can arise in many circumstances. You might find that you are no longer on track for promotion after announcing your pregnancy or during maternity leave, your role has been eroded and opportunities to progress have disappeared.

It is common that restructures happen during periods of maternity leave and you are left with a much-diminished role, or on your return you are told that you will be facing redundancy.

Whilst there is legislation to protect you in this situation, this is a complex area of law and you need expert advice on the law, the time limits, the strength of your case and the best strategy.
