But surely in the current climate, it's a job. Could she ride it out and then look for another job once the economy has picked up?
It's good news.
It is, but the whole experience upset her greatly and she doesn't feel she can go back. I feel, on th faceof it, that it is a god result, but at the end of the day, she was terribly upset and can see why, 100%, she cannot face going back there.
I can completely understand why she wouldn't. That's awful. If she ends up deciding not to go back after maternity would it be 'constructive dismissal'?
Still looking into that one, but the solicitor isn't 100% that we would win a case based on those reasons somewhat surprisingly - but the view is that the emal event was an 'accident', not pre-meditated trick to force her out.
