    have they given you a reason for your redundancy if you have been employed them for 26 weeks up to your 25 weeks of pregnancy arent you still entitled to claim maternity though?

    It depends on the reasons. A friend of mine was made redundant while pregnant, she works for a charity and the funding for her position ran out. They were able to offer her an alternative position though.

    Given the current financial climate there are a lot of companies having to hand out redundancies. There's nothing to stop a company making a pregnant woman redundant, as long as that's not the reason for choosing her over someone else.

    The problem with the system as it stands is that the burden of proof is on the "victim", rather than the employer. I think it should change, I think the employer should have to prove they are not sacking/making redundant the pregnant woman because of her pregnancy.

    yes it is very easy to make up an excuse why the pregnant woman has to go and not someone else, very dodgy ground i suppose for both employer and employee!! But if i thought there was someone else at my work that was rubbish or should go before me despite my pregnancy i would kick off i think!!

    im desperately looking for a job at the moment and so many people are still being made redundant! im lucky my OH makes enough to support us both but i like to make my own money, i have always had a job and its weird to have to rely on someone else!

    i know you prob dont want any excess stress but try and make sure that the redundancy is above board and that they aren't trying to pull a fast one
