One of the recent enquiry we  received was from an employee that was pregnant and had been with her employer for 6 months and was told she was at risk of redundancy. In order for any employee to pursue an employer for unfair dismissal on the grounds of redundancy (she should have been in her employment for 1 year), the employee must have at least have 2 years continuous employment to claim statutory redudancy. If the employee is pregnant, then if the employee (having considered the criteria for being chosen for redundancy) believes that the reason the employee was chosen was to do with her pregnancy, then the employee may be able to bring a case in the Tribunal. The key is that the employee would have to show that the reason for her redundancy was related to her redundancy. The employer must show in detail a fair selection procedure was applied.
