Can my employer dismiss me if I am off sick or if my performance at work has been affected due to pregnancy?

It is automatically unfair to dismiss you (at any time) when the reason (or principal reason) for the dismissal is connected to your pregnancy or statutory maternity leave.

If you believe you may be (or have been) dismissed because of circumstances linked to your pregnancy, take advice from our specialist team at an early stage.

As well as potentially being an unfair dismissal, these situations commonly give rise to claims for pregnancy/maternity discrimination.
