Paternity & Maternity Rights Solicitors
Finding out you are to become new parents can be a joyous occasion, and that should not be sullied by stress at work. Knowing what you are entitled to, if anything, in respect of maternity or paternity pay can be confusing. Further, too often we see women being held back, or unfairly selected for redundancy, because of their pregnancy.
As new parents, you are entitled to certain rights and protections, and this includes protection from discrimination. For example, a woman on maternity leave is entitled to additional protection in relation to any suitable alternative role during a redundancy process.
If you have any concerns about your employers behaviour, your maternity or paternity entitlements, or you have been selected for redundancy whilst on maternity leave, it is vital to seek specialist advice as soon as you can. Most employment claims have a very short limitation period, 3 months less one day, so it is important that you seek advice immediately so you don’t miss that limitation date.
Here at Ison Harrison Solicitors we are experts in maternity and paternity discrimination. Our Head of Department, Mr Yunus Lunat, has been featured as an expert in Employment Law and Discrimination on the BBC, Channel 4 and many other news outlets. Our diverse team can provide expert advice so that you are supported every step of the way.
If you would like assistance with any maternity or paternity matter, give us a call on 0113 284 5000 or contact a member of our team today via the ‘our people’ page.
