Linda Stewart

Linda Stewart is Partner and Head of Employment Law at nationwide firm, Simpson Millar Solicitors. An accredited mediator, Linda has over 15 years’ experience specialising in Employment Law and is an expert in advising and representing women experiencing difficulties in the workplace. Linda advises on all aspects of the employment relationship, but specialises in particular in the area of sex discrimination; supporting working women to challenge pregnancy and maternity discrimination, sexual orientation discrimination, unfair dismissal or redundancy, and equal pay issues. For lots of working mums, the excitement of having a child can be made stressful when difficulties at work arise. Women can find themselves being treated poorly by their employer after announcing a pregnancy. Many find themselves sidelined while on maternity leave; left out of important decisions affecting their role within the business while others struggle to agree flexible arrangements when returning to work. Linda supports women to tackle these tricky situations; she understands the lasting effect pregnancy and maternity discrimination can have on a woman’s income and career development.
