    How we’ve helped others with their employment rights issues

    I emailed City Advice for help about a dispute with my employer over statutory sick pay. I became ill due to complications with my pregnancy but my employer refused to pay me for any sick days as I hadn’t told them I was pregnant. I didn’t know what my rights were but thankfully City Advice were able to explain my entitlements and they also helped me to draft a letter to my employer. It worked, my employer paid me all my statutory sick pay which was such a relief.”
