  • Shame on Eversheds. I imagine that a lot of claims are brought against UK and international law firms for discrimination. If followed through to the end like in this case I suspect that many of those firms will be guilty. It also gives assurance to men who feel that they are somtimes on the back foot.

  • Shame on Eversheds?? For what? Trying to act fairly and protect the rights of a pregnant woman? Or for sticking to its judgement and, in reality, being right to do so?

  • Protect the rights of a pregnant woman whom they redundancied eight months later...
    It was a barmy thing to do, allocate points for lock-up and then say that as the woman could not collect invoices she should get the top score, rather than a pro-rata score. Anything but a top score would have seen her lose out.

  • I'm not against protection for women in pregnancy or maternity. But employers are going too far in relation to these rights in order to protect themselves from possible discrimination that they don't realise other employees are being treated unfiarly. It is about time that this is recognised.
