I was in a really vulnerable place...the way the team handled my complicated employment issue was absolutely outstanding. Honest and caring. I cannot recommend them enough.
Whilst pregnancy and motherhood can be an amazing life experience, it can also be daunting, relentlessly demanding and overwhelming. And just at a time in their lives that women need the most support, sadly they are all too often discriminated against at work. This can be extremely distressing and shocking.
What does pregnancy/maternity discrimination look like?
Some examples include:
sacking someone soon after a pregnancy announcement
refusing time off for medical or antenatal appointments
passing over a pregnant person for training and/or promotion
making someone redundant or cutting their pay whilst on maternity leave
bullying or harassment due to pregnancy
If any of these things seem familiar, you are protected in law and may have a claim. And unlike many other areas of employment law, you do not have to have been with your employer for the minimum 2 years to take action.

This was a very stressful time for me. I really appreciated Amit understanding my ‘out of my comfort zone feelings’. He took control and negotiated a settlement without me having to keep reliving the whole ordeal.
