My wife has returned to work after taking her maternity leave.


She was a manager at the company before she left. In her absence the company promoted an existing member of staff to manager.


Now that she has returned she has found that a lot of her responsibilities has been removed and given to the other manager.



You could interperet this as the employers failure to give my wife her old job back, as she clearly does not have the same levels of responsibility as she did before she left for maternity leave.


She is going to resign, as the company have been inflexible and unsympathetic re: her having a baby from day 1.


Has anyone else experienced this sort of thing ? If so, what did you do ? Did you escalate to a tribunial ? what happened ?


Any advice would be appreciated. I phoned ACAS and they werent that helpfull.

You need to tell us how long mat leave she took was it 6 months (OML) or 6 months + (AML)


RTW after OML = must be to EXACTLY the same role


RTW after AML is different and the role could be different but must be suitable and appropriate. There must be a good reason for the change, if there was one.
