Hi this happened to me so I'd like to sign the petition but I can't get into the second link (it's coming up as an error) and I'm not a member of facebook.

I can't get into petition either Sunshine.

I honestly didn't think that that was allowed anymore. Sorry to hear about you.

surely you can be made redundant while on maternity leave, you just can't be made redundant because of maternity leave??

Yes you can get made redundant while on mat leave - I believe the law changed in the last few years to allow this. I don't think it's ethical though.
