I was up against some very high profile people who had millions of money to back them however i had some lawyer friends who helped me and even they said get someone who specialises in employment law. It was very satisfactory to see how the other parties lawayers made mistake after mistake even though they get paid 400 plus pounds an hour and i had someone pro bono back me. We won i got exactly what was legally mine.
If you would like any advise in box me- i found the whole process straining exhausting and it really got to me - when i look back at it now - what hurts the most is that because i was often upset and stressed it reflected on what should have been the best time in my life - but am happy i did it we can not let people get away with things like that it is the 21 century and women should not be punished for having children!!!!!!!
could you explain more about what you mean?
there is nothing illegal about making someone redundant when on maternity leave, but it is true there is a process to be followed.
were you successful in proving that the role had not been made redundant, or getting some further form of compensation?
