Redundancy in Pregnancy

Hi, I am 25 week pregnant and currently in a redundancy situation with my employer (whom I have worked for 12 years).  They are looking for me to sign a "compromise agreement" - there has been no mention of Statutory Maternity Pay in this and when I asked my HR team about this they advised that I would not be entitled to SMP as it is not officially a redundancy but a compromise agreement!  I know I am going to have to contact a solicitor on this matter but just wondering if anyone has undergone any similar experiences or has knowledge of these matters??

Sorry I couldn't help you Gillian.  What happened in the end?

I did get made redundant and my employer DID have to pay me my SMP - which I received as a lumpsum within my final redundancy payment.  I have been temping for the past few months and now at 36 weeks pregnant - it is time for me to put my feet up!!

Sorry you were made redundant - at least you got your SMP.  Good luck with the birth!  Not long now
