When an employer treats you unfairly because you are pregnant, you need really good legal advice from a lawyer who isn’t going to try and squeeze you for every penny you’ve got. We know firsthand how hard it is to find someone who knows what they are talking about, cares about your situation and won’t just see pound signs when you speak to them. That’s why we set up our free legal advice line. It is staffed by highly skilled employment lawyers who specialise in pregnancy and maternity discrimination. They volunteer for Pregnant Then Screwed and will give you the advice you need to understand your legal rights and will explain what your options are for next steps.

If you would like free legal advice please call: 0161 930 5300
Monday to Friday 9am – 6pm
Or you can email: Advice@pregnantthenscrewed.com
If you would like to speak to someone outside of office hours then please email: Advice@pregnantthenscrewed.com and someone will call you back at a time convenient to you.

The lawyers who speak to you have been thoroughly vetted by Pregnant Then Screwed and we are confident that they will give you high quality, personal advice whether you are an employee, are on a temporary contract or are self employed.

To help us evaluate the effectiveness of this scheme, we ask that all women who use the service complete an evaluation form, this will be sent to you by email once you no longer require assistance from the lawyers available via our service.

If your enquiry is about your holiday entitlement, we hope that our online holiday guidance will be able to answer your query.

We also run a Tribunal mentor programme. If you are taking legal action against an employer, we can pair you up with a woman who has been through this process to act as a friend and a guide. You can find out more here

  • I am so blessed to have found this! I have just been sacked, first baby, living in the UK my family are all back in australia and apart from having my husband I felt so alone in all of this

  • On your “Join our campaign” section on the site you state that claimants have three months in which to bring a claim. My apologies if l appear to be pedantic but, the law being the law, you actually have three months minus one day. Claimants have been caught out by this before, don’t let it be you.
