Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. On what date did your employment end?
it ended on 18 september 2014
Ok thanks how long did you work there in total?
i started there in august 2007
Ok thanks, ***** ***** awful you have been treated this way if your managers were aware you were suffering from post natal depression. It is my view you can bring a claim of both constructive unfair dismissal and sex discrimination as the reason for the PND was pregnancy related. I would not let this go as it is really unfair that you have been treated like this. You can raise a claim against your employer. You will need to first engage pre-claim conciliation via ACAS details of which you will find at http://www.acas.org.uk/earlyconciliation and then lodge a claim. It is likely that the employer will not want to fight this and will settle.
If you have any further questions please do ask. If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would take the time to rate my answer.Thank you and all the best.
Thank you for that. Is there a time limit within which I should contact ACAS?
You need to do it straight away as you only have 3 months from the date of termination to raise the claim.
would you recommend doing it through a lawyer or alone?
It depends on your financial circumstances. You can do it alone but it is better to have a lawyer involved if you can afford it.
Thank you. You've been very helpful
