“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.

Chris @ Redmans assisted me with an employment issue. Firstly, he was very proactive in coming back to my initial enquiry and then helped to clearly lay out the options that I had in relation to my position. He then assisted with the preparation of my case, which led to a very satisfactory outcome. I would highly recommend the quality of service & professionalism offered by Redmans Solicitors.

Chris was very effective and decisive in dealing with my matter. I felt guided, and the pressure to make decisions was taken off my shoulders; he knew what needed to be done and I was happy to follow his advice. The result of the legal dispute was a great success for me. He is also kind and personable. The only thing that I would say it could be improved, is the accuracy of cost estimation at the beginning: not many activites, that could not have been forseen had to take place, but costs went up more than double in the end. Overall very good and trustworthy. I would definately recommend and use Redmans services again.
