Sussex Business Award winner Martin Searle Solicitors is launching a free telephone advice service for employers and employees concerned about the workplace rights of pregnant women and women on maternity leave.
Throughout February 2011 expert employment law solicitors will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4pm to 7pm to offer advice on all issues surrounding maternity and pregnancy rights at work – including new rights on additional paternity leave.
Director of Martin Searle Solicitors Fiona Martin says: “Despite previous years’ high profile campaigns around the issues, pregnancy and maternity discrimination continue to be a major problem and blight the careers of many women. While some employers discriminate in the belief they will get away with it, others just don’t understand the law sufficiently to ensure the rights of women are fully met, for instance with respect to health and safety, maternity pay and leave, flexible work and maternity returners’ rights to return to work.”
