Miscarriage no risk assessment

When I was pregnant I notified my manager asking him to do a risk assessment as I was always on heavy duty.He forgot then I phoned him again reminding him that I needed a risk assessment the he said to me the risk assessment is there at the client's house as I used to do community work.All of a sudden I said to him no I need mine cause am pregnant then he apologised saying sorry I completely forgot.Weeks after that that's when I had miscarriage and I took the case to ACAS because I was entitled to compensation but he denied the second phone call and said he only remember the first call.Now the case has reached to a point were my solicitor is going to take employment tribunal.Do you think am going to win since he said yes he was aware that I was pregnant but he is saying I didn't put it in writing.Please help me ladies.

I have observed a tribunal since I have an HR background. All of us in the public gallery thought the judge would rule one way, when in fact he ruled another. None of us can give you a definite answer but make sure you have evidence of the dates and times that you phoned eg a phone bill in your evidence bundle, which will help your case x

Hi there

I'm sorry to hear about your miscarriage. If you haven't already it might be a good idea to call Maternity Action on their advice line, they deal with enquires like this a lot: 0845 600 85 33

I hope this helps and sorry to hear you're having such an awful time with your manager.

Best wishes

Hi,

Sorry to hear this. It's awful news, hope you're ok.

Usually if you speak to your network provider, they have a recorded conversation on file. Or so I've heard anyway. Speak with them and see if they can help you with this matter

Hope it all works out for you xx
