Have you experienced Pregnancy and Maternity Discrimination at work?

It's against the law to be dismissed or treated unfairly at work for reasons relating to your pregnancy. We can help you use the power of the law to fight back as you are protected under the Equality Act 2010. 

Leading Employment Solicitors in London are here to help you

If you feel as though you’re suffering discrimination on the grounds of pregnancy or maternity, it’s important to take the right steps but also quickly as there are strict deadlines to making a claim (3 months less one day).

Our team can help you resolve the issue and also get compensation for being unfairly treated. 

On your side, fighting your corner

We've represented lots of women who've been side-lined at work after telling their employer they're pregnant, and in some cases have been selected for redundancy after becoming pregnant, or have returned to work to find they've been placed in an inferior role. We can help you.

Either call us on 0808 258 3531 or request a call back today for Free initial case assessment.
