I can recommend two excellent employment lawyers to you.
I have already been through redudancy post maternity leave, except my employer waited six months after my return, before doing the dirty on me, after 10 years of service!
I sued them for sexual discrimination as well as unfair dismissal. I was the only female out of seven senior managers. I also happened to be a new Mother.They lost I won!
I would recommend Jo Keddie at Winnkworth Sherwood - Top Lawyer in Employment 0207 593 5000.
I would also recommend Charles Russell - Another top Employment Lawyer highly recommended.
I could not use them as my previous employer uses them. However two of my friends have used them and both got excellenty settlements!
