We are seeing many women facing redundancy whilst on maternity leave. Employees tend to think that because they are on maternity leave when they are selected for redundancy, this automatically means they have a case for unfair dismisal if they are made redundant, or for constructive dismissal if they resign. The position is that, if the employer can show ETO reasons (economic, technical or organisational reasons) for the redundancy and that the selection was fair, the employer would be able to succeed in any action for either unfair dismissal or constructive dismissal.
