“I was working in the main City office when my employer closed another branch. I think they used the fact they were closing one branch to make me redundant at the same time believing that as I became a mother I would have been less effective. They didn’t give a reason for why they were making me redundant beyond the fact that the overall headcount was diminishing (due to the closure of this other branch). My initial offer was a few months’ notice period (pay in lieu of notice) and statutory redundancy (to reflect the correct number of years). I asked whether it was because I was pregnant and suddenly the offer increased dramatically.”
