“Having a child is stressful enough without  problems at work because of your maternity or paternity. Our expert employment lawyers offer concise and clear advice on your rights and options”

[spacer size=”20″]

Experts in Maternity and Paternity Law

Having a child is a stressful enough experience without your having to experience problems at work as a result of your child. These problems may involve the failure to carry out proper and reasonable health and safety checks for pregnant employees, restructuring or redundancy during maternity leave, or the failure to grant flexible working to parents.

If you’re experiencing maternity or paternity-related issues at work then you will want and need expert advice on the potential consequences and how you should approach your employment law problem. Maternity and paternity-related issues can be extremely stressful and you’ll want expert advice on your options. Our expert employment lawyers can provide you with the advice you need and will explain clearly and concisely your options and the potential consequences of your legal problem.

How our employment lawyers will deal with your maternity issue

Pregnancy and maternity issues at work are unfortunately a common occurrence. Women are often sidelined by their employers because of the pregnancy itself or because of the exercising of rights relating to pregnancy or maternity rights. This can extend to the pregnant woman being unfairly selected for redundancy by their employer or to other detriments such as the provision of unequal pay, the failure to promote the pregnant woman or even dismissal. Employers also have duties relating to the health and safety of pregnant employees which they must accord with. Further, employers often mistreat mothers whilst they’re on maternity leave and the return from maternity leave can be a difficult one in some circumstances.

Our expert employment lawyers will help you prepare for and deal with your maternity-related legal issues. This could involve a simple telephone conversation with you or the provision of detailed written advice on the legal issues you should expect from your maternity, how to exercise your maternity-related rights, and clear and concise advice on your options. Choosing the right lawyer to handle your maternity-related issues for you can have a significant impact on achieving the outcome you want.

How our employment lawyers will deal with your paternity issue

Our employment law team can help you deal with your paternity-related issue. Our approach to paternity-related issues is a conciliatory one and we have found informal engagement with your employer through a solicitor is a highly effective means of resolve paternity-related disputes. However, if negotiation with your employer should not succeed then we will guide you through the related litigation, should you wish to take the matter that far. Our expert employment solicitors offer advice and representation in the Employment Tribunal, from issuing of a claim form to representation at your Employment Tribunal hearing.

New fathers (both natural and adoptive) or the mother’s partner (both female and male) are entitled to take two weeks’ paternity leave. They are entitled to be paid at the statutory rate during this time period. New fathers/partners may also be entitled to take up to 26 weeks additional paternity leave and can apply for flexible work.

Prompt efficient service. Hourly, and part thereof, billing got a bit stressful at times - as opposed to flat fee - made me think twice about sending an email or making a quick call when I had a query because it would have eaten up minutes from my budget. But happy with the legal service I received overall and would recommend.

Chris Hadrill has provided a truly wonderful service and was willing to lend his support and expertise at a time when other solicitors, only wanted to discuss their fees! A clear thinking and down to earth professional, Chris can be trusted to listen carefully to your matter, cut through the fog, and advise you on the best (and most realistic) way forward, saving you time, money and heartache. It will be helpful if you first get your ducks in a row in terms of documents / evidence etc. and then contact Chris, (that’s what we did) as this will help your matter to be dealt with faster. The more organised and together you are the more successful you will be. You'll be fine with Chris, I highly recommend him. Good luck!

I was generally impressed with the fast turn around, efficiency, responsiveness, and consideration of circumstances. I needed a couple of areas of advice quickly and with Redmans help was able to get to a conclusion quickly and with minimum stress. They were friendly and professional throughout - I'd use them again.
