Maternity leave

You may be feeling out of your depth when working out what you are entitled to in relation to maternity leave.

There are a number of statutory rights for pregnant women:

  • the right of all pregnant women to take time off work for ante-natal care;

  • the right of all pregnant women to work in a safe environment;

  • the right of all pregnant women to claim discrimination and unfair dismissal if dismissed because of pregnancy or maternity leave;

  • the right to take up to 52 weeks’ maternity leave;

  • the right of some pregnant women to statutory maternity pay (SMP); and

  • the right to return to work after you have had the baby.

If you believe your employer is in breach of any of these statutory rights please contact either Katherine Maxwell or Naomi Greenwood and we will assess your position and talk you through all your options.
