Press Releases – Launching our free legal advice service

Free legal advice service for women enduring maternity related discrimination

To mark our one year anniversary and International Women’s Day, we are today launching a new free legal advice service for women enduring maternity related discrimination.

The service is in response to the high demand seen on the site from women who have submitted their stories and called for better, free sources of legal advice for women suffering harassment or issues with their employment at work due to pregnancy or maternity.

The pilot will run for four months from March 2016 to July 2016. The service will help women determine whether their employer or contractor has in any way broken the law and what can be done about it and is staffed by legal experts who have been vetted by Pregnant Then Screwed.

The hotline will be manned 9am to 6pm, Monday to Friday with and out of hours email service available. Women who use the service will be invited to complete an evaluation form post completion to evaluate the effectiveness of the scheme.

Joeli Brearley, founder of Pregnant Then Screwed commented:

“I can’t think of a better way to mark our anniversary and International Women’s Day then by launching this brilliant new, free advice service. One of the key barriers to women seeking help is a lack of confidence and financial worries. Our hand picked team of experts are on hand to give high quality, personal advice whether you are an employee, are on a temporary contract or are self employed.”
