Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. I may also need to ask some questions to determine the legal position.
How long have you worked for this employer and what is your specific question in relation to this please?
Thank you. So that I can advise, what is your specific question in relation to this please
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Many thanks for your patience. If you are pregnant and that is the reason for the errors you have made then you should of course us that as the main argument in your defence. Whilst it does not provide a guaranteed excuse and no further action being taken against you, it should at least serve as a mitigating factor to explain why these incidents happened. It will hopefully reduce their seriousness and make it clear that you are to doing anything malicious or negligent and that things should improve once you are no longer pregnant and being affected in such a way by your pregnancy.
Finally, it is always worth bringing up the ‘D’ word - discrimination. State that you believe using actions brought on by your pregnancy or pregnancy-related issues can potentially amount to pregnancy discrimination and you would hope that the employer will understand this is not something that is permanent.
